Picture quality issues!

Hi everyone,

This is just general question, but I had by DVD player and VCR hooked up to my single scarted TV through a scart switcher. I also had an aerial signal booster on the go as well. However, the overall picture quality was a little shabby when watching TV and recorded TV programmes.

I decided that I was not bothered about having RGB signals for the VCR so decided to lose the scart switcher and run the DVD player directly to the scart on the TV and have the VCR going through the traditional aerial connections. I also decided to remove the signal booster.

Low and behold, the picture quality is infinitely better and the sound when playing videos back is also much improved.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to why this might be the case?

Many thanks,

Mark.

Does your switcher have an 'RGB' switch? If so, the picture will be just composite when it is off and RGB when it is on.
Also, most VCR's don't output RGB, only composite.

Thanks for the replies.

The switcher marketed itself as having 21 pin connections, which I understood to be RGB? My VCR manual also refers to improved picture quality via scart.

I'm not too worried about my VCR being in mono, when you've had DVD, not much pleasure can be gained from viewing video! Also the video sound is only coming through the TV speakers.

Cheers,

Mark.

No VCR will output RGB as VHS is a composite format.

21 pin means it's fully wired.
