    I just bought a SAMSUNG UE40D5520 and now realise that it doesn't have a scart port to connect to my 9 year old sky box.

    What should I do?

    Hi.
    Does it not come with an adapter cable in the box?

    Thanks, there is a scart adapter. I didn't check the accessories before asking. I didn't know that scart adapters exist

    Hi.
    Basically, SCART sockets are deemed too big; people want thinner and thinner TVs, so the manufacturers shift it to a separate cable...
