I am in the process of buying a new tv with no scart, but it as component connections anyone recommend a decent scart to component about 1.5m

You could also consider a SCART to HDMI converter (I seem to remember that composite didn't produce as good a picture as SCART from the toppy - but I may be wrong). Some TV manufacturers also supply converters (at extra cost?)

Scart to HDMI involves analogue to digital conversion; decent quality would be very expensive. Component is as good as RGB; not to be confused with Composite, which is poor quality.

Look for scart to 5 wire audio + Component (or YUV) lead on eBay, but beware that most are wired for component out, scart in, i.e. component device to scart TV. You could resolder one of these to work correctly; it's only the audio that needs changing. Let me know if you have a problem with this and I'll modify one for you.

I have bought some adapters and modified them so that they are suitable for connecting a Toppy to a TV with RCA Component input (3 x video + 2 x audio).

As well as the Toppy, they will work with any peripheral device which can be switched to Component output on the scart (e.g. DVD, Satellite box, etc.).

Note: Component is sometimes referred to as YUV or YPbPr.

If anyone wants one, they are 9 inc. postage.
