Connecting SCART>component with component>SCART
Posted on 2011-10-12
Basically, I want to run a SCART>component cable from a source (Foxtel (pay TV) unit) and then using female-female RCA sockets, connect the component ends to a component>SCART cable to plug into our TV's SCART input.
i.e. I am trying to make a SCART-SCART cable without having to buy a full SCART cable.
I am aware of the directionality of SCART cables and with he correct cables, would this work? This would obviously remove the ability to transmit full RGB (with syncs) over the SCART, but I only want YPbPr and audio.
The Foxtel unit's best output is over SCART and due to the lengths required, finding SCART-SCART cables is hard. I need to use SCART as the TV's component inputs are full and I don't want another switch.
Anyone know if this would work?
