Easy one for those in the know. will I get better PQ with my DVD through S-vid or through RGB scart?
General concensus is RGB SCART is preferable to S video.
Damn it!!! Just spent £20 on new S-vid cable
Why not borrow a fully wired SCART and compare the 2?.
If the SVID looks ok to you, why change?
You should ask the question before you buy and not afterwards
It appears I gave you all a bum steer anyway. What I actually have is a home cinema system which was just connected via the yellow video plug into a scart.........which of these is best then??
The yellow video plug is composite which is generally acknowledged to be the poorest quality.
If you have a scart output on your HC system it may well have RGB in which case you should use that. If it doesn't have a scart but it does have a s-video socket - use that instead. Either should show a considerable improvement over the yellow composite connection
£20 well spent then...although hooked up the s-vid and did'nt see a great deal of improvement.
There is no scart connection just the composite and s-vid.
Still looks brill anyway but you know how it is. If you can make it even better you'll try anything.
Try this - with one foot on the ground hold a 6" length of OFC Cable exactly 24" above your left eye. Now tilt your head to the right and then ...
If your DVD player is a Toshiba its worth noting that you might get superior picture quality using s-video and not RGB although both will give very good results the s-video with Toshiba DVD players is sometimes superior although the colour balance is slightly worse i would say S-video can give sharper more detailed pictures with Toshiba.
