    Heya, I realise that this question has been asked a lot, and ive searched around to try and solve my question, but I just want to confirm on here before I suck it up and split with cash....

    I have a MacBook that need to be connected via scart.

    Currently I have a mini DVI to VGA adaptor (the small one from apple). Is it possible to:

    OPTION 1: Just buy a VGA to scart and be done with that? If not...

    Am I correct in thinking that the audio and video needs to be separate?

    OPTION 2: I was thinking that Id need this mini DVI to video adaptor

    and then (S-video to composite cables)

    into (composite to scart)
    (and this option 2 would do both my audio and video?)

    So would either of those two options work for me??

    Thanks in advance

    You need for the Macbook with the Mini DVI:

    Mini DVI to Video Adapter: Apple Store

    And a Scart to 3.5mm Jack and Phono to connect to the Scart TV: Maplin

    You'd be hard pressed to find any (new) laptop which can output straight into SCART.
