I've been reading something, and it looks like, while RGB is theoretically better, as you say, in practice the SCART connector sucks big time. On the TV I have the standard RCA inputs for Y'PrPb, but I can't find a cable for the old XBox, while the rgb scart is easily found... I guess the console natively outputs RGB, and not component, so I guess I'm stuck on that.
Meanwhile I'm using S-Video, which is surely a lot better than composite (less ghosting), but still a bit blurred for gaming.

On the XBox, I can only use what is there. I am so out of the loop that I checked the Lik Sang website, only to find Sony had it closed so long ago... Give a bro' some gaming love, guys!
I'm gonna get me a HDMI capable DVD player some day, but for now the XBox will have to suffice.
