I've read through these forums and people are consistently asking the same question (myself included until recently), so why not make a sticky explaining the answer? Firstly, the RGB signals from either a Component piece of equipment or an RGB Scart piece of equipment are very similar. The difference as far as you or I are concerned is where the H&V Sync signal is. In Component signals, it's in the Green cable, and by default, your Component inputs are configured to look for the signal there. On an RGB Scart signal, it's embedded in the Composite video signal on pin 19. Now you can spend upwards of £130 on a converter to break down your RGB Scart and split out your Sync signals making them suitable for Component video. But it costs a fair bit of money, and adds another box and PSU to your equipment rack. I prefer the low-tech method. Buy yourself a Scart to 5-phono cable like the QED AV19, which splits the important pins (for RGB Video) onto Phono connectors. Hook up the R,G, and B phono's to the relevant Component inputs on your TV, and then connect the Sync cable to your Composite input on your TV. You're now inputting a valid RGB signal to your TV from a Scart device, your TV just doesn't know it yet. On my Panasonic W5, I have to bring up the Setup window and change "RGB" from "Component" to "RGB". I then go down to the "Signal" menu and change the Sync location from "on Green" to "on Video". All being well you should now get a picture when your TV is set to Component, and it should be considerably better than the Composite signal you were getting before. Obviously Plasma's/LCD-TV's menu's and inputs will vary, but on the whole I suspect this method should work on most Flat-Panel TV's. You could very easily make a cable yourself to do this by searching for the "scart pinouts" on Google, and simply putting R,G,B signal pins and their grounds onto 3 phono's and the Composite Sync onto another. If you have enough bits to butcher, you can have RGB Scart via Component for free! Give it a go, it's a hell of a lot cheaper than the alternative!
