does the game cube output in s vid cos i tried with a logic 3 lead for all the consoles but the cube has no picture on my plasma but ps2 works
Depending on the make and model of his plasma, he might not have scart sockets.Originally posted by <<ERROR>>
You're probably best off getting an RGB SCART lead for your 'cube and feeding that to your TV. It should have a SCART socket or two (and you can get a SCART switch from somewhere like Maplin if needed).
I've only ever found that the official Nintendo RGB has the best PQ of any of them. Most of the unofficial ones never did RGB and some of the others e.g. Game produced a terrible image with a lot of cross hatching.A gamecube RGB cable isn't that expensive: have a look on Amazon.co.uk. I got one for about a fiver (it wasn't a Nintendo-brand one, though).[/B]
Ah. Point taken. I'll be getting an official one then... Although I believe that mine at least has it's RGB pins wired - the TV gave a picture when I selected RGB mode.Most of the unofficial ones never did RGB and some of the others e.g. Game produced a terrible image with a lot of cross hatching.
Hmm. I'm curious why? Is there a difference in resolution between the SCART and the component video? (as I'm fairly sure that there is no progressive scan on any PAL games)--snip-- ...and offers a very slightly better picture on a pal GC than the official GC RGB scart cable.
I was just responding re the plasma screen as shaolin kid didn't say what plasma he had or what other inputs apart from s-vid or component. All plasmas will accept a VGA signal as far as I'm aware. There are various RGB to VGA converters out there and the best of the bunch by far is the JS Tech, RGB to VGA converter. Widely acknowledged over in the plasma forum. I have one and cant fault it but is may be a bit pricey at £120 if its only going to be used for a GC thoughOriginally posted by <<ERROR>>
Anyway, even if some plasma screens don't have a SCART socket, I believe that some others do have a 'VGA' socket - it will take TV-frequency RGB signals (and I have no idea about VGA-frequency signals). I think that Maplin sell SCART to Plasma VGA converters (just wiring, no sync doubling etc.).
I don't know much about this area, though. I am way out of my depth here (plasma screens and all).
