Anyone ever used a scart to HDMI converter cable ?  I need one to go from our DVD player to TV.  Just realised that none of these modern TV's have scart sockets anymore 

 

Something like this ...............

No, but the format is significantly different, hdmi is effectively a USB derivative while SCART is analogue. To do it any justice it will cost.

That’s what I was worried about but the blurb on that item says it converts the analogue scart signal to digital at the hdmi end 🤷‍♂️

Top man Fred , does it work 🤔😁

Cant remember been in the cupboard for years you can try it. Might be the wrong way round says it converts HDMI to Scart so not sure if it goes the other way as well

As long as you are not to bothered about sharp colours it should be okay, whites will be off white and you will only get very dark grey rather than black.

I think i remember why i got it, it was because we had a new virgin media box and it only had HDMI and our TV only had Scart. We bought a new TV shortly after so it didn't get much use must have worked or i wouldn't have kept it

Cheers Fred, the converter arrived this morning 👍  Just got to wait for the new TV to arrive now.  I envisage a situation whereby I'll be sat in the chunnel while Ersilia is on the phone to me asking how she gets the TV to work 😏
