Retro Access Sega Genesis 1 Megadrive 1 stereo RGB SCART with CVBS TV lead
Retro Console Accessories
Up for sale is the 1.5 metre version of our stereo RGB SCART RGB cable. It will automatically switch your TV into the highest possible quality signal from your system - RGB with full stereo sound. As you might be aware, the Genesis 1 does not output stereo sound to plug into this socket and stream stereo to your TV.
There are two cable options in the “cable length/type” menu:
Fortraflex is a highly graded individually shielded, highly flexible cable made to order by Tasker of Italy for our company. All signal lines are individually shielded with pure copper strand wrap to eliminate crosstalk-induced artifacts. The outer casing is a soft and flexible polymer used commonly in professional microphone cables or high end wired game controllers (eg: official SNES controllers) to allow for increased mobility.
75 ohm multicore coax cable is a professional grade cable that maintains an impedance of 75 ohms to completely prevent signal reflection. This is the highest possible grade of cable possible for video signals, and we’re the only company in the world offering this as an option for SCART. Each line is individually shielded with copper wrap as well as having the grounds isolated from other signals via color coded PVC coating. This cable is also made to order for us by Tasker of Italy. Coaxial cable is thick, but it's the best option if you need a longer cable.
The cable contains 220uf Nichicon or Panasonic capacitors on the RGB lines. These are mounted on a PCB inside the SCART hood.
Shielded cables for Genesis eliminate jailbars for the most part but do not eliminate them fully - only a mod will fix this as the issue occurs within the hardware.
Please note that for XRGB units, you need a SCART to XRGB adaptor to use this, or if you ask I can wire the cable for xrgb for no extra charge.
This cable is fully compatible with the following Sega systems.
Sega Megadrive 1 (UK or Japanese)
Sega Genesis 1
