Component to Scart and Audio Breakout Cable Question

Regarding this item: 1.5m 5 RCA Component YPbPr & Audio to Scart Video Cable/Lead by thatcable.com avaialble on amazon and ebay.

It says that it can convert component video output to a scart input on a television...

Can it also convert a Scart Signal output to a Component Video and stereo input on a television the other way around (It is not powered like other converters)? I have a male to female scart converter to make the cable a scart input...

Or do I need to get a scart to component powered converter box, I noticed the cable above is not powered.

Also... does it matter very much which companies scart rca audio breakout I use in terms of quality? Or do they all just pass through the exact information after the audio breakout feature?

I'm purchasing:
-Valueline SCART adapter with stereo audio SCART Plug -jack stereo Socket 3.5mm 0.2m black [VLVP31930B02]
-How is the quality on this?

Thanks!!

This is not a converter of any sort - it merely provides the correct connections if the attached hardware can support multiple 'modes' of input/output. From the item's description:

Quote:
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU CHECK THE SETTINGS ON YOUR INPUT DEVICE (E.G. TV) TO ENSURE IT CAN ACCEPT COMPONENT/YPbPr SIGNALS VIA THE SCART. IF IT DOES NOT, THIS CABLE WILL NOT WORK.

I think I confused you...it is advertised as being able to go from YUV Component Output to Scart Output to a Scart TV. I'm saying with a female adapter can I go the other way...from a Scart Output originally into a YUV Component output for NTSC Component TV....I doubt it though at this point.

SCART is a connector - you can carry Composite Video, S-Video, RGB Video and Component Video over a SCART cable.

Component Video over SCART - is very rare so where you are wanting to connect a Source which is Component Video (most often carried on 3RCA) to a TV via its SCART it will be rare that a simple 'cable' will do the trick.

Where you have a SCART Input on a TV which does not support Component Video (99.9% of SCART equipped TV's) you will require a powered Converter which caters for Component Video from the Source and Outputs to either Composite Video. S-Video or RGB (you need to confirm what your TV supports) via SCART.

You will also need to ensure the Converter caters for 50Hz>60Hz conversion if your TV only supports 60Hz signals and your Source is 50Hz.
