Hey everyone,

I recently put in a freeview box.  The colour is pretty washed out.  If I used a better set of RCA's would that improve this?

Probably not.

Do you have any other connection options? Plain old video+2audio RCAs are the worst option...

First isolate the problem to the leads or box by plugging it into another TV, (spareroom/Mates/Neighbours whatever) once you are sure it is the box or leads, change the leads, if this fixes it, fine, if it remains, it is likely to be the box.
