The vast majority of people here are in the U.S. and have no direct experience with SCART.

 

Hopefully, someone will come along to help, but you might have to wait a little while?

 

Maybe post this question as a new thread in the DVD Recorders forum, with a very clear title like "Any Experience with SCART > HDMI Conversion?" or such to grab the interest of someone who has used SCART and maybe converted it to other connection types?

 

Good luck!

Unfortunately not, SCART is 0 IRE and unless the converters convert that 0 IRE to +7.5 IRE(which they wouldn't since they are meant for the international market) you'd still end up with the IRE mismatch frown.gif

I assumed that the SCART connector was merely another avenue into the same circuitry, so it would not help the black level problem, and it appears that jjeff has confirmed my suspicion. Sorry.

Well just because I want to say my HD HomeRun prime is still happily capturing all my favorite shows and I edit down with video redo and watch them when I want. I even figured out the batch conversion it can do so I can add a bunch of captures at once and let it edit out the commercials automatically for me on all the of them. Later I open and double check then batch convert again to the appropriate folder for each show.
I did have to reconfigure my WMC and Prime after WMC and the cable co figured out I'd moved and was no longer at my old zip code and service area, that took a bit but got sorted OK in the end and everything is happy again:cool: Now I just need a bunch more big drives to handle all my stuff...rolleyes.gif
