    I would like to convert a RGB scart signal to component in the AVR300. I have seen cables with scart in one end and 4 rca connectors in the other. Is this what I should use?

    yes
    you can check the QED Sqart range, as Arcam suggest you need at one end the scart connection and on the second end you'll need 4 rca connection the first 3 are being connected to component red green and blue the 4th rca connection is being connected to composite out for sync.
    and in the set up you'll need to define that the video out is rgb.

    So what I need for my SVHS Recorder TO PLAY NOT RECORD is a SCART-2-RGB cable with an extra wire brought out from the SCART and connected to...where?
    Err..if you select the component input of the AVR300 this is what is selected, not the composite input, right?

    No, you need an S-Video Cable and an pair or analogue audio interconnects. Your VCR will only output either a composite or S-Video signal for the picture. The S-Video connection is the higher quality of the two. The AVR300 will then upconvert the S-Video signal from the VCR to an RGB signal.
