    The official playstation scart lead is RGB (Playstation connector to SCART plug).
    The one bundled with the console that ends in red, white and yellow phono plugs and goes into an adapter is not.
    I use a £5 logic3 PS2 SCART lead which is RGB and works well.

    An RGB SCART lead will (normally) have wires connecting all 21 pins together. If you look at the connector and there are only a few pins on the plug then it's almost certainly not. If you unscrew the barrel and there aren't red, green and blue connecting wires or there aren't wires to all pins then it's almost certainly not.

    The exception are expensive 'RGB only' leads that don't contain connections for audio or return paths for video - supposedly to reduce interference on the main signal. Never used or seen one so I've no idea if they're any good but I don't spend £30 to connect an £80 DVD player :)
