    Hi,
    I am new here and am getting a new plasma panel before christmas.

    I am having my dvd and freeview daisy chained then conected to a JS Technology RGB to VGA and then into my panel.
    Is there a better quality of picture (noticeable?) by using QED RGB only scarts in this set up instead of the normal QED fully wired ones?

    Cheers for any advice you can offer :thumbsup:

    It is an arguable point as some say that they can see a difference and some can't. My own opinion is that any good quality fully screened will be as good as the same cable with the audio pins removed.

    QED and others use different cable on the RGB only cables so yes they can and do make for less on-screen artefacts.

    I tend to supply Supra over QED theses days as the Supra RGB only cables are slightly more pliable than QED and less likely to 'pop' out of poor SCART sockets.

    I'd also suggest you look at the HD15 (VGA) cable your using between the Converter output and your Display - I supply the BetterCables Silver Serpent cables on sale or return if you want to try before you buy.

    See http://www.bettercables.com/1met328feetv.html

    Best regards

    Joe

    Just to say that many months ago I bought a Bettercables VGA lead from Joe for my own system. It really does make a difference, picture is sharper and cleaner via the Silver Serpent over other VGA leads I've tried, and they were pretty good themselves!

    All the best,

    Dr John Sim.
