Hi all, I have just taken delivery of a Sony from JL through another HUKD posting and have connected up a 360 to it with a standard SCART lead. Do I need to use a HD SCART lead to get HD gaming pictures ?

You will need to get an hdmi cable ( so long as your 360 has an hdmi port on the back)

Thats what you need, to answer your question yes you will need it to have HD gaming.... its awesome

and on the zavvi.co.uk website (as an example) the prices range from £3.95 to £34.95 (!) for an official one - is this just microsoft taking advantage of our good nature, or are they worth the additional £31 ??

Glad you got the problem sorted, but just to be clear here, if your xbox doesn't have HDMI you could still purchase a component cable for it to have HD gaming... been using mine like that for around 3 years now... as long as your HDTV has component connections of course, but most do TBH, they are green, blue and red connectors as below.

I use a HD component cable, I got it for £5 second hand from a local game shop near me :D

(xbox manufactured in 2006)
