    I used the second one ... works fine with my 9600 to my sony 25" 4:3 50hz, and panasonic 32" 16:9 100hz. The only difference is the function and blanking line coming from the vga socket.

    ditto

    the first one doesn't have the audio and uses a +5v supply from the powersupply.

    The second one has been updated, so earlier posts to the effect that it was incorrectly wired are no longer true:

    Read through these forums and threads:

    And it is worth the effort in terms of quality. I'm having to use s video temporarily as I rebuild my system and its awful.

    cheers. re-wired to the second method and it worked fine. (sort of LOL)

    Just to get the resolution/timing right. Screen keeps scrolling at the moment.

    I'll have a good read through those threads later. Anyone know the best resolution and timing for a 16:9 TV?

    Anyone ever tried this Scart wiring with an NVidia card (i.e. 6600GT)???? Everyone always mentions ATI cards with this so I'm curious if it works with NVidia cards???????

    nVidia cardas cannot output a composite sync signal so the above lead would not work. You could, however, use this lead; no personal experience so can't really advise you further.
