    Is there any kind of adaptor to connect a component cable up to a tv that accepts component Via scart ?
    Could I use a composite to scart adaptor and plug the 3 Image connectors from a component cable into it?


    Opinions?

    there is a cable made for loewe televisons that will take componenet to scart. It will also have audio and the sync on y as well giving six phono to scart.

    Would the Profigold PGV372 do? No audio or sync.

    I don't think so - unless the 3 composite inputs on the adapter (audio L+R and video) are exactly mapped to the 3 SCART output prongs that fit into those used for component (Y Pr Pb) on your device.

    Conventionally the pins used are:

    audio L =3, audio R=1 and video=19

    Y=11 (on 'RGB Green' pin), Pr=15 (on 'RGB Red' pin) and Pb=5 ('RGB Blue' pin).

    well after a chat with one of the guys at tvcables.co.uk we managed to piece together a solution. I'm gonna use a YPbPr Power Box from liksang and connect my amecube and xbox into that. the YPbPr Power Box will then plug in to a high quality 3x Phono Adapter that will carry the video signals into the component scart cable that came with my TV. Hopefully this will mean that both my xbox and gamecube will be able to connect via component :)
    Audio is all fed through my dd5.1 amp.
    My stuff from lik-sang should be here next week. So I wont know if the set up works and what kind of picture i get until then :(

    I think it should be possible to use a SCART-to-CINCH cable with RGB for this purpose.
    Of course most of these cables to not include RGB.
