    Hi all,

    Is there an adapter that converts a SCART signal on to a Component cable ?

    Here is my idea....

    I'm looking at an LCD tv with component inputs (Also has SCART RGB). My DVD player only has SCART (RGB) and I shal be running a cable under the floor. To save myself from ripping up the floors twice (First time to run a SCART, the second time to run component when I find enough money for a component equipped DVD player), can I run a component cable and change the ends for the different connection when the time comes ?

    Wacky idea, but I thought I'd ask.

    Thanks, Richie.

    Run a whole load of decent coax cable- R,G,B, H and V., plus component triplet- eight total. More than enough (you'll think....)

    Terminate with BNC connectors.

    Then make up SCARTs to BNC break out (pin outs can be found at Maplin).

    (I use my A/V amp to switch both component and R,G,B, Sync (on composite)- component sockets used for RGB, Sync is routed through s-video Y).

    Yes you can convert an RGB scart output to YUV component, but it is not just a matter of a different connector. RGBS & YUV component are different signals that need to be converted and if not done well will result in a large loss of quality.
    The best solution for the conversion can be bought from www.js-technology.com but there are other cheapers converters from the likes of Keene.
