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?
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.
Evil is charming and beautiful. It makes you doubt yourself. It asks for one small compromise after another until it whittles you down, and it functions best when no one believes in it.-JOA
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...
Been dialing it in and playing with Plex Media Server and XBMC/Kodi, both are cool but have a bit of a learning curve to get the files named and setup properly to do the info/posters, and playback just right. Probably not for the guys that just want a simple box that just easily plays back any files but when I get the media info and posters right it sure looks great and makes it easy for anyone to find what they want to watch or listen to, plus it does all the other cool web based things like You Tube and websites/podcasts.
PS: I think all threads should stand on their own merit and there should only be one 'Sticky'...An Index thread for the whole subforum...
For those who don't know or care, I've been keeping Post # 1 up to date since day one... last update 3/17/15.
