To enable the use of RGB games consoles and RGB computers with an Extron RGB interface. This adapter also converts "sync over composite video" into a composite sync (CSYNC) signal using a built in sync stripper circuit. A composite sync (CSYNC) signal is required when using analogue RGB equipment in conjunction with Extron video distribution equipment. Please see the SCART cable power requirements below to enable the video sync separator to operate. This cable benefits from being screened to minimise electrical interference and all ground pins are connected inside the SCART to avoid compatibility issues.
Power requirements for (CSYNC) video sync separator:
Requires a EuroSCART cable which is wired for either 5 volts or 12 volts on pin number 8 of the SCART plug. This is needed to power up the LM1881 video sync separator circuit and without this required voltage you will not get a stable picture on your monitor. Please see diagram below which shows the location of pin 8 . If there is a wire attached to this pin then you should be good to go. If you are unsure whether your cable is wired correctly please contact us for assistance. All video game console RGB SCART cables from Retro Gaming Cables are compatible with the video sync separator version except the Nintendo GameCube.
