Re: Time to digitize your VHS tapes?

I am imagining SCART to RCA (red-white-yellow trio) using an adapter you don’t have, RCA to S-VIDEO (9-pin VIVO connector) via Mystery Cable #16 then S-VIDEO to the TV-Box then the TV-Box’s VGA to the monitor.

I have an RCA-to-SCART connector that goes between my PowerBook and iPod dock and a SCART input on my steam-powered TV; assuming it works in both directions, you would use it to get from SCART on the VCR to RCA.

There are connector photos on Wikipedia’s list of display interfaces that might help.

connector photos

Wow! That's incredibly useful, thank you! I can now start identifying all the mystery cables... 8-)

using an adapter you don't have

That's the story of my hardware life... :-}
