Can anyone suggest a new Panasonic VCR with SCART?

I've decided to buy PANASONIC NV-FJ730EU VCR, but found out that it does not have a SCART output, which I need to connect/pass through the DVD player (Pioneer DV-565A) I am going to buy as well.
Can anyone suggest same level VCR (preferrably Panasonic) which has a SCART output?
And yet another question: Is there VCRs that output SCART RGB?
Thank you.

Hi Vladi, where abouts in this wide world are you? The reason I ask is that in the UK (where this forum is based) and most of Europe just about all VCR's have scart sockets.

As for a VCR that outputs RGB, well they do not exist. A standard VCR will only output a composite signal, but an SVHS VCR will also output S-Video. Most VCR's will however pass-through RGB if a DVD etc is connected to the VCR's scart input.

Hi Mark!
You are right - I am in God-forgotten Ukraine (although technically in Europe, but you know...).
The PANASONIC NV-FJ730EU VCR that is sold here does not have SCART connection and that's why I'm asking.
By the way - I plan to pass a composite signal from vcr through dvd (Pioneer DV-565A) to TV - do you know whether it will work, or will I have to change every time to Composite in the dvd settings to watch my vcr?

Certainly in the UK a TV scart socket that is RGB compatable will also work with composite, so hopefully it will be the same for your TV.

Thanx a bunch, Mark!
What about my VCR choice - do you 'approve'? Can you suggest something else?

You don't actually need a VCR with a SCART. SCART is just a (convenient, some might say) way of gathering together the various signals (video audio left & right etc) into one cable and plug.

An alternative, for a VCR that has only separate sockets (usually RCA phono sockets) for its signal outputs, is either

- a cable terminated at one end with a SCART plug and at the other with a set of RCA phono plugs....like this one

OR

- a cable with RCA phono plugs at either end and a SCART adaptor plug.....like this

Thank you all,
What can you say about S-VHS JVC HR-S 5965 E (if you know it) compared to the mentioned above Panasonic?
What is a Nicam decoder? Is it necessary in our "sad reality"?

By the way, does anyone know cables from company called Bandridge?
Are they good quality - the regular ones, not the Profigold series?
