They should be in more than one branch, I initially saw them in my local store (Castleford) last week then had a trip to Liverpool yesterday and saw some there too!

Definately worth an extra £200

Good deal, although why anyone would want a scart to composite lead is beyond me unless their tv doesn't have at least a Scart input (highly unlikely in this day and age and the graveyard of old TV sets) A full wired Scart lead is RGB, composite is lesser. Converting Scart to composite or Composite to a partial wired Scart (non-RGB Composite) is counterproductive.

IF you have an AV reciever you can input from a scart source using these cables. Many AV recievers take this and can then upscale to HD-ish video. Any of these in Dundee??

Yes, but as cicobuff says, you'll get a really bad picture because it's fundamentally the wrong thing to do. "SCART" is just the type of plug on the end; it is capable of carrying composite (this form - the worst), S-video or RGB signals. If your receiver has S-video or (better) RGB inputs then use those instead, with a different lead. Expecting quality pictures by "upscaling" composite video is living in fantasy land.

I was trying to figure out how to use my Technomate sat receiver which I use for viewing foreign channels and upscale the SD pictures so I suppose this lead would help.

Suppose I'd have to buy and expensive Av amp first though to do the upscaling ?????

EDIT Oh dear maybe not.

Your telly "upscales" anyway - don't waste your money because you're unlikely to notice any difference.

what are you on about?

I bought this lead from Ministry of Deals for £2 so this is a great price for a quality lead.

I'd agree there's a big difference in picture quality between composite and rgb when used with CRT TV's, but not LCD. Well, I couldn't tell the difference from the scart lead I was using anyway.

Nice :thumbsup:

Try a Gamecube with the standard composite lead and scart block that comes with it, compared with a Gamecube with a proper fully wired RGB scart, on an LCD I can definitely tell the difference!

Hey I can't argue that, I've tried a PS2 plugged up via scart and an old xbox plugged up with component cables to an lcd and the picture is much better than the standard composite av block on both.

But like I said, I couldn't tell the difference from my dvd player to lcd. I also tried it from my computer (tv-out from pc to scart lcd), normally I'd use dvi to hdmi and it still looked great even with 720p video (to my surprise too, I'm usually the first to trash composite).

I recently changed the connection between by DVD player and LCD TV from a £30 scart lead to a £6 component lead. The component picture is 5 times as good atleast.

Is there a Poundworld in Dundee? I thought they hadn't made it that far North yet, are you thinking of PoundLAND?

Exactly. There can't be many people with a need for this type of cable anymore, unless they are oblivious to the differences.

It's rare for any TV or DVD player nowadays not to have component in\outs - I think my Sky box has too. Much better using those for standard definition pictures. Failing that a full wired scart cable. Of course, people do need to know how to setup their equipment to send and recieve the appropriate signals.

It's German.

5 left in Poundland Manchester Arndale.

If anyone is still after these then tesco are selling tesco value ones for £1 also.

Great for connecting a PC with video out or S video to an old CRT tv (providing you have an s video to yellow RCA adapter).

Resolution is no good for using as monitor but for media center/movies its superb if you cant afford a HD TV with VGA, DVI or HDMI
