I have a Pinnacle Showcenter 1000G which I would like to connect to a standard VGA monitor. Pinnacle use the SCART connector on the device to do that but with proprietary pinouts (unused SCART pins I am guessing).

This is the pinout configuration of the SCART connector to VGA adapter

I suspect the easiest way to make one of these is to get an unused VGA cable, cut off one end and connect up a SCART plug but it's not entirely clear to me how the various pins correspond especially the pins that appear to be in parallel (like 7 & 5 on the SCART and 3 & 8 on the VGA connector)

Any ideas on how to do this appreciated

Thanks

Larry

Pins 10 and 12 of the SCART are the auxilary data channel that most SCART devices dont use, these appear to be carrying the H&V TTL sync to the standard H&VTTL sync inputs of the DB15 VGA.

The pins that you have assumed as parallel are infact the three RGB channels and are shown as connected with coax, ie on the SCART pin 7 is the blue channel, pin5 is the shield of the blue channel, on the DB15 3 is the blue channel, 8 is the shield for the blue channel.

Hi Cyril

Thanks for that. I tjhink I understand that. Seems like the easiest(!) way for me to make this up is to find a spare VGA cable, cut off one and and crimp/solder up the connections to a SCART connector unless I can find a friendly person to do it for me :-)

Hi Larry I have a spare part (700mm) of a VGA cable here with a male DB15 on it, I also have several SCART connectors in my box of bits, if a male DB15 is what you need and the length is adequate then PM me,

Cheers
Cyril
