    Hi all,

    Sorry for sounding dim but is there fully wired 21 pin Scart cables that aren't RGB enabled?

    The only reason I ask is that I recently experienced a problem when watching dvd movies (picture flashing every now and again) and thought it might be the scart lead. It was a good quality gold plated lead and when I opened it up I found that one of the cables had snapped. I replaced the Scart with one I had laying around (still fully wired).

    Now whenever I turn on my DVD player the TV switches over to AV1 but the top right hand corner is blank whereas before the letters RGB would also appear :rolleyes:

    Any ideas anyone :lease:

    Many thanks,

    Steve.

    All fully wired scart cables will include the RGB terminals. Although the TV doesn't show RGB (mine never does) is the picture correct anyway now.

    Hello Ian,

    Watched a DVD last night and the PQ didn't seem quite as good but it may be in my head?

    Why would one Scart lead bring up RGB on the screen and another not?

    Cheers,

    Steve.

    I'll have to pass on that one as I have never seen a DVD player or TV that behaves like that.
