    I really need a new scart cable, the one I have that came with the system is really thin, I get a lot of audio noise/buzzing during gameplay and it gets even worse when hooked up to a switcher. I would like a fully shielded one like you can get for other consoles from the big cable makers like Retro Gaming Cables in the UK. I have some of his "packapunch" range and they are superb quality, the audio buzz on the SNES and Mega Drive is almost non existent even on the white Konami logo screen.

    Edit: I sent a query to Retro Gaming Cable UK and they have plans to release a fully shielded RGB cable for the Omega in the near future, they currently do sell them for some Super Guns and even the old Analogue CMVS.
    Excellent, thank you. And yes, I wanted a fully shielded cable for the Omega as well so I too contacted RGC, which at least nudged him towards releasing one

    I'd definitely buy a better SCART cable for my Omega. The video quality is great but I get a noticeable hum I'd love to eliminate.

    That would be awesome if they released a cable for the Omega.

    Yeah I guess you could buy the Gen/MD 2 shielded cable and de-solder the caps and resistors from the pcb in the scart head but what about the sync line, just disconnect? I have found I need a sync stripper in mine to work properly with the Framemeister which is how I use the system currently, anyone else find this ? Hopefully they will sell a cable with one included as an option since the standard MD cable is wired for C-Sync.

    As far as I know he'll be releasing his cable to output csync, so it will include a sync stripper. That is what I requested and talked about with him anyway. Perhaps he'll have a version with composite sync (which is what I believe the original cables it came with used) too for those that may want it.

    Retrogaming Cables UK have just released their "packapunch" fully shielded Omega CMVS SCART cable!
    https://www.retrogamingcables.co.uk/...e?search=OMega
    I have ordered one and will post some feedback once it arrives, I really hope it solves all the of audio buzz I was getting with the supplied thin cable. I have these cables for my other consoles and they are really high quality and do eliminate all that noise you got on cheaper cables.

    According to the site, the cable is constructed with sync on luma instead of the usual composite video. I haven't independently tested if using this signal as a sync source will yield a good result so your mileage may very.

    I just got myself a PC Engine Packapunch cable and it greatly reduced the buzz I was getting from that console. Very interested to see how their Omega cable works.

    I just wanted to update things regarding the Retro Gaming Cables UK "Packapunch" fully shielded RGB cable I ordered. It arrived today and I am very pleased to say that it works beautifully and has vastly reduced the background audio buzz/hum I was getting before. I have tested it directly with my XRGB Framemeister and also via a Bandridge scart switcher and background buzz is almost gone. This was a big problem before, especially when using the scart switch as the noise was even worse to the point were I couldn't use the Omega with it. The only thing I had to do differently with this cable was manually set the sync level to 24 on the Framemeister rather than leave it on auto.

    Basically this solves one on the biggest issues I had with my Omega and I am glad it was the cable and not due to some other internal issue, I love the system and recommend anyone keen to reduce the noise on their system to pick this cable up. Obviously I am aware that Quan sells his own RGB cable alongside the system and I have two of these, the picture quality is excellent but sadly the lack of shielding does cause some unwanted audio buzzing.

    Edit: It is worth noting that my Arcade Works RGB cables are from 2014/15, so are probably an earlier version. I will open then up and double check with shadowkn55.

    Good to hear that it works. I know that scart cables I was selling in the early years weren't shielded. I moved onto a heavier gauge wire stock that has shielding and a drain wire that dramatically improved operation. I did offer an exchange program for a short while when I made the switch over. If you shoot me a picture of the cable you had before, I can tell you if it's the older cable or not.

    I must've missed out on the cable exchange too, I'll shoot you a pic of my cable when I get the chance.

    I ordered a Packapunch cable and it arrived today. I can also verify that it works very well and eliminates most of the audio hum I was getting. I honestly didn't notice the audio noise until I started using a receiver for my game consoles. Everything sounded good except the Omega and PC Engine. Once I upgraded to these cables however it made a huge difference.

    so i opened it up and noticed that the board that is attached to the MV1 board that has the unibios was loose and came unglued so i pressed slightly and got it back seated. Can i just hot glue it back down?

    It doesn't need to be glued at all. It should stay snapped in place on its own. I'm guessing shadowkn55 just glues it for shipping.

    Correct. Especially since I migrated to the solderless module but given the rough handling treatment it can get during transit, it's better to not have anything rattling during an unboxing.
