    I have a Sharp LS32GA5E arriving on Saturday, which has the following connections...

    Input 1 SCART (AV input, RGB input, TV output)
    Input 2 SCART (AV input/output, Y/C input, AV Link)
    Input 3 S-VIDEO (Y/C input), AV input
    Input 4 RCA pin (component)
    Input 5 D -sub 15pin, 3.5mm jack (Audio)

    I have been advised to use Input 1 with a decent RGB scart cable for the best result.

    Can you recommend a good value cable that will also give me pretty good pq results?

    Help appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Rich

    Hi Rich,

    What's your budget?

    I would personally recommend the QED SQUART ones, for about £40-£50. IXOS ones also get good raps, I reckon you can get those for about the same price as the QED ones. One things for sure, if the TV comes with scarts already, bin them, anything you buy will be better :)

    Cheers

    Andy

    Nothing will beat the QED P2110 flat scart which sells for 30 quid per metre. Reckoned to be the best scart up to the 60 quid mark.

    Some people use dedicated RGB SCARTS, but I've never had any problem with fully wired (don't have to worry about which way around it connects either).

    However, What I would recommend, should you ever feel the urge to use a SCART switchbox, is to get the flat type. The proximity of the connectors on some of these things make connection the "standard" angled entry type somewhat problematic.
