    My DVD and Sky are presently connected to my TV by ordinary Scart cables. I understand that it is possible to buy Scart cable which only handles RGB signals rather than ordinary Scart cables which handle, RGB, S-Video and Composite.

    Is it worthwhile getting Scart cables which handle only RGB beatring in mind one would cost around £25? Would I really notice the difference?

    On a top quality cable it shouldn't make any difference as there should be sufficent shielding between the video & audio wires.

    On a cheaper cable, like your £25 example it should make a noticable difference, it'll be down to your screen size, quality of the source and your own fussyness level to how easy you can spot it.

    Obviously should is the important word there.
