    I'm not sure but it might mean that you only have an RGB (Red, Green, Blue) connection on your tv. This provides only picture. I've seen RGB scarts that's why I'm guessing that's what it is. Apparently the picture is significantly better this way. I think you might have to use a reciever for sound?

    Does your tv have other connections for sound input?

    Yes, at present I am using the "full" scart to connect my Sky+ & the "half" scart for my DVD with surround sound which is therefore o.k. I just wondered what it was & what was the point!:cool:

    Yeah I don't know what the point is either. Maybe it lets a better signal get through without any interference from sound signals?

    I guess if you only have a half scart connection you can't do a comparison to see if there is much difference in picture quality from that and a normal scart :rolleyes:
