CD-32: SCART cable?

Hi everyone,

is there a cable that connects the CD-32 console to the SCART input of the TV? I haven't been able to find one anywhere. I'm using the RCA (antenna cable) for a long time now and as you can imagine it looks quite bad. Any alternatives perhaps?

If you want scart then you will need to get an expansion board for your CD32 that has a RGB output on the back.

If you dont want to pay anything but want a nicer picture than RCA then use s-video. If your TV doesnt have a s-video input then get one of these

Pointing this out since it came up in another thread: the exception is the French CD32, which has a native RGB miniDIN-8 connector on the back.

i was using component for a couple of weeks on my cd32 and like you i thought the picture was pretty bad ,even on a crt tv , but as my cd32 has the expansion , i went for a rgb to scart cable ,and wow what an improvement over component, sharp and clear ,just way better.

if you want and even better picture and ofc the ability to have a hard drive inside your console,then maybe consider getting the TF328 at some point.

Thanks again guys, the improvement from RF to s-video was huge. It looks very nice now. There was even noise with the RF (not sure if that's normal for the CD-32). Next step will be definitely to get the TF328 as xubidoo suggested. *thumbs up*
