the SCART connector can be used for RGB input (3 pins + 3 ground pins)
or for CVBS input (1 single pin in, 1 single pin out + 1 ground). It
can also be used for S-video on some TVs, in this case CVBS is luminance
and the chrominance signal is input via the red RGB-pin. When using
the S-video input, you have to make sure that you switch the TV to
S-video mode, it will also show a picture in CVBS mode, but only BW
because the luminance signal is BW part of the full signal. I had a
similar problem ...
