    just wondering if a scart cable is fully wired does it always carry an RGB signal if it is being sent down it?

    Cheers

    May seem like an odd statement, but...
    Just in case you didn't realise not all scart sockets are RGB enabled so the scart cable assuming it is fully wired, only carries RGB if it is connected to an RGB scart socket!

    Another stupid question.
    I have a 17-18 years old Sony 25" TV with only one SCART, does anyone know it then they were wired for RGB or only for composite or SVHS?
    I tried connecting my miniDV cam to it using a SVHS to SCART adapter but I only get B/W, if I use composite its OK. Can this be the adapter's fault or is it the TV?
    Thanks.

    Thanks to all for your answers.
    If the TV doesn't accept SVHS through the SCART, untill I buy a new TV (which will be as soon as they sell a PS PAL with YUV other than the Panny, hopefuly a Sony or Philips) I'll have to keep it to composite.

    The reason for this is - the composite in pin on a SCART is also used for S-video luma. A composite/S-video SCART needs to be configured for one or the other using the TV menu. If that option isn't present then the SCART will not accept S-video.

    Not trying to be snippy but a scart cable doesn't have to be fully wired to be RGB compliant, QED make RGB only cables that are only wired for picture....................a confusing state of affairs for sure this scart issue :rolleyes:
