    Hi All

    Having just read a message re the above, I want to know if I have wasted LOTS of dosh on two super dooper QED s-vid cables.

    If I have they are going back!!!!!!

    General opinion wanted on this issue.

    If RGB is better, why? and which cables are good ones?

    Thanks in advance for any info and please try not to be too technical - treat me like Homer Simpson and you wont go too far wrong.

    AJ

    I have tried both RGB through the Scart and S-Video (using an S-Video cable) and the RGB looked loads better. I noticed the difference straight away.

    Also the S-Video input looked darker (I had to change my TV settings quite considerably to make it look better).

    I can recommend Lecktropacks for a very nice Scart for only £16 (http://www.lektropacks.co.uk/)

    I hope this helps.

    RGB seems to have a better transferable resolution. I have done back to back testes using Arcam DV88 and Loewe Aconda, connected via. QED Squart.

    The RGB signal gave the best picture.
