    Component connections are picture only so your best option would be scart to scart as there is very little difference between component video and RGB and the scart will carry sound as well as pictures

    If it's true component (Y, Pr, Pb) and not just plain RGB, then you'll need an adaptor, because scart to component can't be done with a simple cable. Component video doesn't carry sound.

    An RGB scart does not carry audio so use a fully wired scart lead instead
