scart connection help

i bought a new tv from richersounds the 37" philips. quality of freeview is really nice and when i connected the ps3 it was great.
i was watching a movie on my dvd player which is also a philips (dont know model number but its the one which plays divx) and is connected by scart and there is this kind of interference with the picture. there is a kind of ghost image which runs accross he screen every second or 2 and can be seen when its dark.
the sattelite isnt as bad as the dvd but its just not a excellent picture.
is there a way to fix these problems?
i was thinking of gold plated scarts but i dont know if this will fix the problem.
please any help appreciated.

would this improve the image quality on the dvd player? Item number: 380060661187

Try changing the scart cable between the DVD player and the TV. Sounds to me like the most likely explanation is unsuitable shielding in the scart cable to block out some local interferance. So swapping around the scart cables may resolve this problem.

yh thats why i thought of gold plated ones as they stop interference right?

Depends if your TV has component in. DVD manual states:-

Progressive Scan component video for optimized image quality

So you should have no problems using the dvd player for component. probably have to change a VIDEO OUTPUT setting in the players menu.

Before you buy a new cable, check that your dvd's video output is set to RGB.
#12

gold plated scart or component cable?

component is far better than scart

you need a 3 plug RCA to 3 plug RCA component video cable and a 2 plug to 2 plug audio (red / yellow)

this should work very well assuming its long enough

my dvd recorder has 4 inputs in the back. dont think a component will be usefull then. i might just get a gold plated scart lead.
is there any difference between expensive scart cables and normall ones in terms of quality?

As csiman says, component is better than scart, but there are 2 signal types on scart - RGB and composite video. RGB is far superior to composite video. Your problem might be that your dvd is outputting composite video on your scart cable. Obviously the setup will be dependent on your dvd, but generally you should look in Settings, then Picture then Output Type or equivalent. My Philips DVD has the options PAL or RGB. If you're not already using RGB and you change to it you might not need a new cable.
