Cheers, took a chance and just ordered a bunch from a cheap eBay seller in the end.

Hopefully they're true RGB scart and not just AV.

I'll eventually replace them with better quality ones from retro games cables or the likes either way but on a tight budget right now.

I'll update when they arrive sure.

Ugh.
Going to highjack this thread.got a scart to BNC off eBay.looks good quality.
Got a PS2 rgb scart off eBay too.
All I'm getting is this on the ikegami

Any ideas before i cry.i tried with another Sony broadcast monitor and it's pretty much the same

That's a strange one.. looks like a sync issue. Have you set the monitor to external sync? Can you try another rgb cable for another console?

I don't have any other cables
It has to be one of the cables.

I wonder if my ps2 is NTSC.it came from Thailand back in the day.
Should that matter?

If you were anywhere near Arklow I'd give you a loan of mine to test out - one of these: https://www.retrogamingcables.co.uk/sony-pvm-scart-converter-bnc.

Have it hooked up to the BVM and it works perfect.

I'd be betting on the PS2 scart cable... open it up and see what pins are wired

Retro Computer Shack have the highest quality of cables I've seen but don't cover every platform.

The store will finally be back tomorrow, April 7th because the owner is receiving ongoing treatment for leukaemia.

The last snes RGB cable I got off consolegoods was poor quality, seriously loud buzzing and the overall picture wasn't as good as my previous one. The version that has the audio outputs seems to use a thicker protective shield, albeit it being slightly more expensive it's worth it.

Cables came today from the lad on ebay and theyre actually identical to the ones from consolegoods. £1 or so less per cable and cheaper shipping all in.

Picked up Saturn, MD 1&2 RGBs, Wii and Original Xbox component.

Only tried the Saturn and MD, but all seem in order.

Going to test everything further tomorrow.
