Is this the correct scart cable?


Recommended Posts

Hello..... I've decided to start upgrading the picture quality of my retro gaming consoles. Im working on my Jaguar now. I picked up the little black box to go from scart to hdmi. (The ones that were suggested in You tube videos.) I now need the scart cable. Is this the correct one from retro computer shack? The reason for asking is this statement he has on the item:...... To be on the safe side, I thought I better ask you guys before placing my order. Thanks for your help.


This lead is designed, tested and sold, only for use with a TV fitted with a Euro type RGB Scart Socket.

I can't provide any support, when using this lead with any type of video converter, or adaptor,

as they are often very difficult to get working with Retro Computers and Games Consoles.

Yep, says Atari Jaguar on it, so must be the right one! :lol: (It really is)


Oh, I see now where you're going to use an HDMI adapter.. please be sure to let us know if you experience input lag using a flatscreen. Seems to be mixed opinions on that subject. Especially noticeable when playing the pinball games... Pinball Fantasies or Ruiner. Your TV might have a 'game mode' that turns off a lot of the processing, so should help reduce lag anyway.

I used to have a RCA (phono) AV cable from the same company. I bought a Scart (with CSYNC). The quality was way better. However I don't know if it works with an HDMI adapter. I would have thought it would be not much, if at all better. Let us know how it goes. BTW, I have it plugged in to a 22" Flat screen.

Also not sure about 'interlaced' mode on the Jaguar side. Haven't tested that yet.
