    Is there a cable( or a group of cables or equipments) which will connect the component video output on the rear of Yamaha RX-V740 AV Receiver to scart input on the rear of Philips 36" TV? Thanks for everybody's help. :confused:

    There are cables that have component connectors on one end and a scart connection on the other, but your main problem is that Philips tv's don't accept component video, so I'm afraid that a lead of this type won't be of any use to you.

    The signals which your tv will accept through its' scart are RGB, s-video and composite.

    Nope. RGB and component (aka YUV) are not compatible, even though the color of the YUV connectors implies otherwise. Said adapter is used for TVs that allow YUV via Scart, like e.g. some Loewe models.

    Note: Technically speaking RGB is also a component signal, but the term 'component' usually refers to the YUV connection only. :lesson:

    Interfacing the 3 core YUV to a 4 Core RGB + Composite sync SCART Input is not a Pin to Pin job - there's active signal Transcoding to be undertaken; do it on the cheap and kiss goodbye to image quality.

    I doubt you'll get something anywhere near the Kramer quality for the same price - in a TV studio you'd be spending a few £k to do the same conversion.

    Best regards

    Joe.
