    Hi.

    I'm wondering if the 'scart to DB15(RGB)' connection would improve the sky picture quality on current 'scart to svideo' connection?

    I have a philip 9527(japanese version which has no european scart input).
    and, Im trying to connect it at best possible quality with sky decorder.

    I'm curretnly using QED scart to Svideo cable and wonder if purchasing a twice more expensive scart to db15 cable would be a wise investment.
    :lesson:

    Any opinion would be much appreciated.

    Presumably your TV accepts RGB via DB15 then? If so then yes, RGB is the better option ;)

    I know RGB is better than Svideo.
    If it's scart connecters compared, there is nothing to concern about as there is not much difference in price.;)
    The point of my question is that purchasising a twice more expensive DB15 cable would be wasting money or not.
    I'm just comparing the Scart to DB15(£160) cable with Scart to Svideo(£80) cable for not so great picture quality from 'SKY decorder" ;)

    So your TV has S-Video in via DB15?

    If this is the case then I doubt you'd notice a difference changing cables.

    I'm sure you're aware of the John Sim convertor... http://www.rgbtosvideo.com/rgb-sv/rgb-circuit.htm which is generally regarded as the best in the business :)
