    No, scart does not under most cercumstances carry component YUV signals. The scart will only carry composite, S-Video and RGBs signals. The different signal types are not compatable with each other without hardware conversion.
    The few exceptions that I know of to this are the iPlayer Freeview box and some Lowe TV's. Other than these I do not know of any equipment that can send or receive YUV via scart.
