On retro console cables

Handy things they are and easy to misplace. Also, them cables that connect your dear vintage console to your not-so-dear retro TV do tend to get in the way of crisp image after 10 or so years, and that's why this RGB Scart cable for the MegaDrive and Genesis seems like a good idea. After all, it does provide with the best picture quality possible (I think). Seller ships worldwide and even has a lovely online store @ www.retrogamingcables.co.uk.

  4. well they are best played on CRT TV's. I've played my mega drive on a 42 inch plasma and the image is blockly.

  5. Let me just add that my PAL TV still sports dual SCART inputs (hooray) and even the Wii is hooked on one. Mind you it's a LCD, but I'd really prefer a proper CRT one. Only problem is space...

  9. You can run your Sega Mega Drive with RGB scart on a large plasma or LCD using an XRGB upscan Converter Unit from Micomsoft. But the input scart socket is wired for Japanese scart, however, retrogamingcables.co.uk supply Euro scart to Jap scart convertors, similar they can supply RGB scart cables pre-wired for the XRGB upscan unit. Very popular option in the US market.
