Pardon my ignorance:

What is the difference between this solution to the old Amiga/Scart to RGB cable?

Just my guess, but the intent of this is to eliminate the whole SCART part altogether (Amiga RGB to component). I'm sure there will be some electronics in between.

Amiga users in Europe have the advantage of having TVs that can handle the Amiga 15KHz signal natively with just the correct lines connected through a SCART cable.

Again, just my guess-- this new device is aimed at the North American crowd whose best option for non-scandoubled/flicker fixed output is to go the way of component.

I am especially interested in this new device because I have had no luck with the adapters currently available.

Maybe I didn´t explain it correctly:

You dont need to actually have a scart tv. You use an Amiga to scart cable and then a scart to RGB converter.

$22.66 + $9.17 = $31.83 including shipping

So my question remains: what is the difference?

I'm not sure who you're responding to but in my case, I do not think that will work. The first cable is fine if: 1) I have an A600 or A1200 with color composite out and a TV with a female SCART connection.


The second adapter seems to be a very simplified form of the converter here:


http://www.ebay.com/itm/370695549240?_trksid=p2059210.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT


but instead designed for game consoles with female SCART connectors. They then go straight into the component input on their TVs.


In either case, SCART is still involved and I strongly suspect the original poster is describing a cable with an Amiga 23 pin RGB connector--> some electronics --> component video

If only kjmann can step in and confirm. Hope it isn't another vapor project.  :)

Please explain, how to clutch to male SCART plugs together. I feel dumb reading this.
Only Amiga makes it possible? :hammer:

How the composite video signal can be converted into a higher quality component RGB output seems a bit of a mystery too.

It's possible to strip the sync signal from composite and use that as part of the YUV conversion - I have one such adapter that does this. however our doesn't work on my Amiga's.

Sorry, I posted a wrong link:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Amiga-RGB-to-SCART-1-5m-A500-A600-1200-2000-3000-A4000-/131403345367?pt=UK_VintageComputing_RL&hash=item1e983fedd7

I will fix previous post.


Yeah, I was wondering how composite would look converted to component :-). Makes more sense now.

Doesn't Gulliver's solution offer the same results? And available now, and cheaper.

Gulliver's solution offers two male SCART plugs so you would also need a "gender bender" in between. It is really much better to make a SCART free proper Amiga Video to component RGB cable.
