Are the three RGB, or Composite plus stereo audio? Doesn't seem strange at all.

Hi DF96
They are the old large type scart connectors the sort of thing you would see on a early European TV yes with composite and left right audio as RCA at their other end.

Cheers / Chris.

Bolas

Got a box of similar from games consoles and the like over the years also got the full composite video and stereo to scart leads....
I have to admit the SCART is my favourite all time socket and plug combination design, all the features you want, crappy connection, to many pins, works loose at the slightest vibration no signal integrity thoughts what so ever, no real effective screening, crappy construction, wall mounted TVs had to be at least a foot (300mm for the civilised) away from the wall so you could plug the dam things back in when a fly landed on you telly and the scart lead fell out..........

Strangest cable I ever saw was on a car HT system.
It was carbon impregnated string.
