SCART is a European thing. IIRC it was required by the French government
for sets sold there.

I am only mentioning it for the RGB feature. Actually I don't care if
it's either RGB or component, the quality is the same, and it seems no
one US device has RGB output anyway, they prefer component. Actually RGB
of course is also a sort of component system, but I fear I use that name
for both it will cause confusion.
