yeh still have some in bozes that i need to get rid of but still have 2 vid recorders and 2 14in portable tvs amongst the newer tech

good deal if you live in the 1990s

Is this 1080p and 3D compliant - if yes (and only if yes to BOTH) - bargain!

thanks , still use these on a couple of freeview boxes

Sorry for poor picture, hopefully you can make it out.



Standard def isn't THAT bad.

Yea, still use these. Standard def TV & Freeview

Also handy for the DVD player/s.

Got to many tho' and wouldn't use such cheap type Scarts.

Just binned about 10 of these!! still hot though

Can't help but smile how this type of deal gets so hot...........

Sorry for poor picture, hopefully you can make it out.



Pretty much the norm with SCART leads

Bet you wish you hadn't bothered posting now!!!!

lol .... scart .... how quaint!

(Although, with scart leads the quality actually does matter. If the cores are not individually shielded I wouldn't bother. If they're not you'll get a load of crosstalk and a crappy picture with ghosting.)


Quaint? You need to think outside the box.

Buy 20, tie them together, and you've got a tow rope for only £1.

Also got loads with my box of old ide cables.

EXPIREDDDDDDDDDDD CLEARLY!!

Which is interesting to say sibce when I left home in 1999 people were still using RF for games consoles and even recently the amount of people who dont know the difference between composite and rgb scart.

Its only been in the last 2 years or so hdhas become that popluar with most people!

Maybe you have to be a cave man not to know how to spell "you're"?

Hot, but as others have said, binned my fair few!

Well, I guess you get what you pay for.

Sure they are cheap, but for £5 you can get one that will give a better quality. Why not just do that?

Hot, you're hardly going to get a scart lead any cheaper than this, but do you have a receipt to prove it scanned through at this price.....






....just kidding.

What you on about? They're digital, it's just 0's and 1's. They either work or they dont.

Hang on, am I getting Mixed up here?

who wants scart?

horrible quality

horacevankhute voted cold because its not the sony telly he bought

Easy fix for cross-talk/ghosting and you only need RGB, disable pin 19, problem solved.

I don't see how disabling composite video prevents cross-talk between the six RGB conductors.

Crosstalk is an symptom of bidirectional signals, RGB is unidirectional. Google it.

Firstly, RGB is as "unidirectional" or "bidirectional" as any other signal (eg composite), depending on, erm, the direction it's travelling in.

Secondly, crosstalk is nothing to do with the "direction" of signals, it is interference between them, whichever direction they are travelling in. For instance, you can get crosstalk between a stereo pair of audio signals, reducing their separation.

And if you're still worried about "directionality" you will see that the SCART cable can have RGB travelling in both directions!

Google can tell you any old rubbish you like, but you need to apply intelligence to the results.

Theorise all you like, but practical experience tells the rest of the planet otherwise. You should consider researching and understanding what goes on the real world, before opening your trap just pick arguments simply because you don't get it.

I told you to Google it, because I refuse to wipe your **** for you.

Well, that reaction speaks volumes!

5p seems a good deal to me, worth that to hack them apart and use the wire for other electronics repairs and projects.

I liked the 'how quaint' reference

Over 550 degrees, people will still need these for years yet.
