Very happy with how it works, I'm not hearing any buzzing on my receiver and I have it turned up pretty loud. I hear a tiny access noise when it's loading, but nothing beyond that. Visually, some large solid colors I can see noise in if I get right up on the screen. But I am playing on a 55" and don't notice it.

Update: zero audio buzz after cleaning the hell out of EXT BUS and cables, adapters, etc. All holes and pins ;)

Update2: flipped the C60 cap just because - no difference in video quality. RGB/Composite both tested

You might want to be careful that the thread guideline police might take issue with you posting your set-up that didn't work in the same post as the set-ups that did.

He's nothing to worry about. Just a noob.

I'm interested in hearing more details/pics of this cable.

Is that from the dude in Poland or eastern Europe somewhere?

I found a guy while randomly looking for a premium megadrive2 scart cable that sells them out of Poland. User name was thefoo.83, as the ebay link seems to take up 3 solid lines. I was about to pull the trigger on one of his csync cables when I noticed the retro access cables were back in stock(9 as of writing this) and just went with one of those. Thanks to everyone on cable recommendations and the like!

I ordered three of "thefoo.83"'s cables early on when I was first switching my consoles over to SCART. All three of his cables were garbage - spaghetti-thin cabling, poor build quality (the insulation didn't cover the inner wires near the plug ends), heavy RF interference. I threw them all away.

Granted that was two years ago, but I'd definitely avoid his cables.

Have only played a couple of games so far, but I made sure to try Valis 2 - no issues with video or audio, even with the volume turned up louder than I'd usually play it at.

I have a lot of other equipment I plan on testing with in the next week or so (HD Retrovision cables, OSSC, Sony HD CRT, Sony SD CRT, OEM Gen 2 AV cables, and an older discredited "sync boosted" JP-21 cable from Retro Access). Will post other configurations if they prove to be working.
