Possible to connect MiSTer to SCART switch? (re: gScartSW)

Post by sofakng »

Has anybody tried to connect the MiSTer to a SCART (gScartSW) switch? It seems possible if I can find a DB15 (male) to SCART (male) cable... (which I can't seem to find)

EDIT: Sorry, I should have searched first. I do see some links to stores (Lotharek's Lair in Poland and AMedia Computer in Europe). I doubt anybody in the USA is selling them but that would be better for shipping. I also notice they have a separate 3.5mm for audio instead of sending over the SCART cable itself?

I have mine connected to a gscart switch. It works just like every other RGB device in that regard

Ahhh, yeah that looks perfect. Too bad the seller is backlogged and isn't selling for the next week. I'll definitely check with them though. Thanks!
