I noticed this recently:http://www.lik-sang.com/info.php?category=...roducts_id=2355
Looks pretty nifty, and thrifty. Albeit, digging up reviews on the product is another matter (seems like mostly only Euro folks have talked about it as it goes to SCART). My thinking was that for the price, this would be a pretty decent option for some folks like us, presuming that we could convert the SCART pinout to something suitable for whatever the hell kind of signal one could stick into a North American RGB capable monitor. In my case, that would entail something like SCART -> RGBHV BNC connectors (unsure if such a premade beast exists, but it doesn't seem completely unlikely).
That said, has anyone seen or used this cable? Digging around it seems that it might suffer from a darkened picture if you have every console attached, but this sounds like a problem rampant in the Euro SCART switchbox world (apparently even the most braindead SCART switchboxes there tend to be automatic as the SCART connector has a power feed and thus can tell when one unit is turned on or something). Still, for the price - seems mighty tempting, I'd be really curious to know if anyone in North America has used this cable and could comment on the quality, and what method they used to hook it up to their monitor as most likely NA folks wouldn't have SCART connectors on whatever set they hook up to.
I'd also be curious to see if any other mods might be able to be performed on the cable (e.g. similar to the GC D-Terminal mod to get RGB for NTSC consoles). Any thoughts?
