    Hi

    I've just brought a tosh xs34 DVD recorder and want some new scart cables to connect the following

    Toshiba TV
    Sky + box
    TOSh XS34

    So I need 3 and I don't want to spend more than about £100


    Any suggestions on make etc.

    have a look at www.TVcables.co.uk they have Ixos and profigold at good privces, QED are also decent scarts but you pay a bit more for them.

    QED P2110 IM flat scart cables for 30 quid each are reckoned to be the best scarts retailing up to the 60 quid mark.
    Get 3 for 90 quid. :smashin:

    Over the weekend I bought a 1m QED SQART SCART lead, guy in the shop praised it highly & was happy to give a refund if I didn't notice the difference.

    I plugged it in (SKY+ V2 Pace box --> Hitachi 42" plasma, replacing a £15 lead), the difference was noticeable; colours were more vibrant, image sharper so imo well worth it (which is not to say the others ppl have mentioned are not!).

    I dont have a good display like yours but even on my humble 28 inch CRT JVC i noticed the difference. This scart is the best.
