Which gives the better picture, the S-video connection of the RGB via the scart?
The colours are better with RGB, there seems a little more sharpness with s-video, I use RGB.
However, are people using RBG because their TV dosn't support S-video or they can't be arsed to buy the correct lead?
For example if S-video is sharper would it not make sense to use that.
Or are there issues with getting the S-video connection to auto flick to the correct Sacrt socket?
*sigh* 'the old RGB v S-Video' debate.
I prefer RGB as I find it better quality all round.
S-Video is good but I've never known it to be 'sharper' than RGB IMO. I've certainly noticed more 'noise' on it than RGB.
It all depend on the quality of your equipment, some older TVs don't produce a good RGB pic.
Well I sure have plenty of leads to play with.
I prefer RGB, but looking at edge line definition the s-video is a little sharper on my Loewe Aconda 9381ZW.
I'm not saying Loewe tvs have the sharpest picture around (hello Sony), but it looks sharper to me.
I still prefer RGB, on balance.
gringottsdirect many thanks.
Dare I suggest the back projection TV's don't show the difference as high quaility CRT's do?
Rear projection TVs DO show the difference, probably more so than CRTs. They do on my Tosh 40WH08B anyway. RGB/component is a MUST and makes a HUGE difference compared to S-Video.
You will still get WS switching from your DVD player via line 23 switching but not from Sky+ as this only supports the UK(Europe) focused SCART.
