Connecting SCART>component with component>SCART

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?

If the signal you want to pass is component video, any video cable with RCA terminators for each of the three (YPbPr) signals will work.  In fact, I've used inexpensive stereo audio cables for this purpose.  For your purpose, 5 cables should do the trick (3 video, 2 audio).

Worked it out. Syncs should run over green, so it should all link up.

Worked it out from another forum which is more specific for what I am trying to solve.

Sorry Callandor, I didn't explain it very well. Your answer isn't quite addressing what I meant to ask.

If you want to have your comment stand as the accepted solution, can you post what the exact problem it is a solution to?  Otherwise, the answer doesn't make much sense by itself and this question doesn't have much value.

Sorry. I'll try again.

The STU outputs video and audio through SCART and can output in RGB and composite. It can also convert the RGB into YPbPr to run a SCART to component cable which is used commonly here in Aus for this set- up as SCART isn't mainstream, but the STU the pay TV company distributes uses SCART. I was trying to find out whether I could take a SCART to component cable from the STU outputting YpBPr over the SCART and then using an adapter (http://www.selbyacoustics.com.au/storefrontprofiles/DeluxeSFItemDetail.aspx?sid=1&sfid=74520&c=84125&i=251175252) get that signal into a TV through SCART. The TV accepts all types of SCART signals. I needed to know whether if set the SCART RGB, the TV could pick up the signal correctly.

I also asked this question on an Australian forum (http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies.cfm?t=1793870) and worded it better the second time, which is where I got my answer.
