    I bought the Wii --> Scart RGB from Game last week. When I asked for it (it wasn't on show, it was upstairs) the guy asked if I wanted "the one with a plug on each end, or the one with a plug on one end, and all the phono connectors on the other ?".

    Apparently they had both, I am assuming he meant the component. As my TV only has Scart, I got that. This was in Game, Wrexham.

    Aye, I've seen lots of people go there RGB cable but any1 ordered the component ?

    Quick Q: is the only diffrence between RGB and Component the way it plugs into the back of the TV. Don't you get a scart cable teh same as RGB in wiht the Wii? (I get my Wii Tommorrow (B-day Present) :p

    Nah, the one you get free with the Wii is only a composite cable. There are 3 phono plugs on it.

    1 is left audio channel, 1 is right audio channel and the other is composite video. You also get an "adaptor" which let's you plug it into a scart enabled TV, but it still uses the composite video signal which is the second lowest quality connection available (after RF).

    The Scart RGB has a Wii connector on one end, and a Scart plug on the other, and uses seperated Red, Green and Blue video signals, which gives a vastly improved picture on scart enabled TV's. The scart plug is "hard wired" onto the cable and doesn't have those phono sockets on the back for you to plug things into.

    btw, unlucky having your birthday on Xmas eve mate !! you gotta go 12 months between presents !! :|
