QuoteUnfortunately, Nintendo has restrictions built into each console that can prevent RGB output. Some cables advertised as RGB are in fact composite, and although they will work with each Nintendo console, the picture is atroicious.Other cables may be not be correctly advertised as RGB and so may not work on your console. Know what you're getting!
QuoteThis unofficial 3rd party Cable has been modified for use with the UK Pal Snes console only and is not for use with any Game Cube�s or US / Japanese Super Famicons.This cable also provides a Composite signal for improved AV quality over the standard RF Out on any TV with a Scart Socket if your TV is not RGB capable.Please note there is no such thing as an RGB cable that supports the Game Cube and the UK Snes. The UK Game Cube, US and Japanese Famicons RGB signal�s have a high DC offset that is shunted within the scart cable, this causes the well known problem of fading to black when these cables are used unmodified on UK Pal Snes consoles.
QuoteHave a look at the wiki page, please:http://gamesx.com/wiki/doku.php?id=av:nintendomultiavIn general, the PAL SNES has no problem with RGB output. You're probably thinking of the N64 video port, which may or may not have RGB depending on which way the wind is blowing. The important part of the EU-region cable is the 12 volt line that tells older Peritel TV units to switch to RGB mode and get the synch signal off of the composite video wire. There's a short summary of this difference at the bottom of that linked page.-KKC, nervous about new jobs.
QuoteThere was an official RGB SCART lead, it only worked on PAL consoles. The third party leads will be either for PAL or NTSC models, not both. See Super Nintendo SCART cables.
Quotenyder,3rd party SCART (not that wacky japanese thing) cables for the NTSC SNES are readily available from places like play-asia.com. They're pretty much the same as the PAL Game Cube SCART cables. The SCART connector has some pins which are used to switch the display device between internal tuner/external composite/external RGB.
