Hello there,

im not an electric engineer and this is actually the first time i study any electric schematics. thats why there is something i don't understand about the EU schematic
I saw the original version and this EU version. I wonder how its possible to get a colored screen by the scart cable without the AD725 converter? I did not see the converter in the scheme.

Its used on the original version but why not here?

The big SCART connector on your TV has RGB/Sync signals on it already so no need to convert from RGB to composite.

Kinda like a VGA connector. But dorky looking from the 80s. It probably has big hair and some shoulder pads too.

Here is my schematics and board file of my version of your EUzeBox. This is the least I can do after spamming your thread :)

I've tested today a nice SCART2HDMI converter with the EUzebox:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Ligawo-%C2%AE-C ... 00ORWDOWI/

It works very good. It converst the audio and video signals without any problems to HDMI.

So if you have a TV-Set without SCART or without a full compatible RGB-SCART this gadget will help you....
