    Likely an rgb scart is as good as you will get. Your xbox360 was designed for HD flat panel TVs. Your Sky box wasn't and can struggle with some sets.

    I've got my Sky+ box connected to my 32v2000 via scart and the picture is acceptable, it's better on C5 and C4 but perfectly watchable on other channels.

    The one thing that will make a huge difference is to use a reasonable quality Scart cable. I use one of these to connect mine.

    The main issue is that you are watching low to medium quality digital SD broadcasts whose "issues" are hidden by a standard PAL CRT but when you view them on a HD flat panel which means enlarging the image you see the digital compression issues more clearly.
    It's the same sort of thing when you take a jpeg and double/triple it's size and it looks worse simply because there isn't enough picture information in the original to support a larger image with no visual loss.

    As alternate says the reason the xbox looks ok is that it is generating HD images from scratch so you have a much higher standard of source material to begin with, DVD should also look better than broadcast SD for the same reason and well HD programmes should be spot on:)

    Converting RGB to Component will not make any practical difference in this case and would be wasted money, a well made and screened scart (cheap) could help but it depends how poor the one you are using now.
