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

And my Prime is still working fine at my new to me house, I have added yet another quad core Android based TV/media player box that can do all the usual Android things besides playing back all my captures, similar to all the other media players but more open source and I can add anything I want as far as Android apps and games, just like my Smart Phone and tablets.
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.

I've never once complained about anyone grave digging old threads, but this takes the cake. Why on *earth* would you revive this justifiably inert thread (which should have been un-stuck a year ago), simply to post that you're still happy with the same HTPC gear you posted about nearly two years ago? Now this useless moribund thread will be stuck on the DVD Recorder opening page for another two years. Ugh.

[SARCASM] Well YOUR post sure adds usefulness to this thread... [/SARCASM]



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...

Well, considering that some of our toys just don't last, or get outdated and no longer work with a system figured I'd just say it still does what I bought it to do with no issues after all this time. I keep having to buy big externals to hold the keepers. Just hope they don't change something so I have to buy all new gear yet again.
