I have just bought a Belkin USB Videobus II to connect my VCR to my PC. I used an old switched scart with a video composite and just one red audio lead. I managed to capture video but no sound which I assumed was down to the fact that I had one red audio but no white one. A bloke at Comet assured me that a scart/3RCA cable would do the job. I pointed out that the scart had no in/out switch but he said it didn't matter. However, on using it I got neither sound or video. Must the scart have a switch?
My video has two scarts - I tried them both. The lead has a scart at one end and three phono plugs at the other, so I don't see how I can reverse them! I think the scart needs to be switched, as keenan says. Do supermarkets sell these?
Hi Incog I have many probs similiar to you with the belkin, Ended up changing it for Ezmaker USB 2.0 which is similiar. it was alot easier to install and work Maplin Electronic are selling a scart with in/out switch. Its on special offer at the moment for £4.99
