To connect the RGB, Sync an 5V from the chip and 7805 I used a shielded wire, with the shielding grounded on both ends. Also route them as far away from IC9 and 10
(This install unfortunately is quite overloaded)
Now as a final thing I plan to do a recap. pic.twitter.com/ufJLYlxGcO

First, Consoles4you have seemingly found an answer to the remaining jailbars on PAL consoles, apparently the answer is : Do as usual but use shielded wires to do the install.
For this particular issue, I had it (and many others) then I’ve RGB Bypassed consoles and removed CXA entirely. Don’t do that ! It will work for a while and then it won’t work anymore. While CXA was missing (and before it was an issue) everything was fine. Lately, I’ve been re-installing CXA in those consoles and now I have those same old issues reappearing.
You can remove CXA on NTSC consoles but NOT in PAL consoles. Also, and I need a little more time to confirm that, CXA can apparently be responsible for a ton of other issues like random reset, garbled graphics, sync issues.
I can elaborate to prove some of these points if needed. But my advice right now is : Try to swap CXA for a good CXA chip.
