got some what i think is scart interference on my new philips 9632 lcd,so thought i upgrade my cheapo scart cables,to see if thats my prob as pic via xbox360 is amazing and no sign of any interfernce there.but on sky and other soarce,namely dvd there is def interence.
now i dont want to spend the earth,bout £20 each i would say, and would it be better to buy RGB only,but i guess i would need a audio setup as they all say "Picture only"

ones ive come across are, Ixos,Qed and thor. ideally like to get from shop like maplins or richer sounds as they aint to far from me,saves waiting for deleivery,although i dont mind waiting if its a gd deal:D
any help is grateful as its a minefield out there and i aint got a clue:rotfl::rotfl:

You can get quality cables from here, FAR cheaper than Maplins, Curry's or Comets, you do not need RGB cables to get RGB. http://www.tvcables.co.uk/cgi-bin/tvcables/XHT251-150.html
Also check that your picture settings on the SKY box are as follows. 16:9 not 4:3 and RGB not PAL (Composite). On your DVD player also check it is set to 16:9 and RGB out, you can do this before getting the new cables. The important thing is to make sure the SCART cables connect to a RGB enabled socket on the LCD.
Or to get a better picture from DVD look at http://www.pixmania.co.uk/uk/uk/572304/art/samsung/dvd-1080p7-dvd-player.html
