    Hi,

    Fairly new to this game, so bear with me if the questions been answered previously as I cant seem to find an answer.

    The question is regarding a freeview box with 2 SCART connections (1 RGB), and also with an optical out. I will be using a SCART cable that has both audio and video to connect to my LCD TV, and using a optical lead to my av amp for the audio.
    Do I need a specific RGB only SCART cable, or is a normal SCART the same thing?
    Also will the audio pins on my existing SCART cable interfere with the sound - if I just want the digital output via the optical lead?

    Many Thanks

    :confused:

    No problems at all using a fully wired scart to the TV plus a digital connection to the AV amp.

    Thankyou very much for the reply, looks like I'll be using the RGB SCART on the Freeview box over the S-Video then if a fully wired SCART doesn't interfere with the sound... :D
