    Is scart now defunct? Does new equipment still use it?

  2. **The only stuff I ever see it on now are Foxtel boxes. I can't recall
    if the latest ones still use it or not.

    The poms seem to use it but I was having a talk with a group of friends
    and no one had heard of scart.

    It is still used on virtually every analogue video device on sale in Europe.
    Prick of a design, flimsy and no way of locking it in, particularly bad if
    you have a fat, heavy cable attached.

    It is still used on European TVs. My new Loewe Art still has a Scart
    connector and I use it. The Loewe apparently uses it to convey control
    information to compatible attached devices. We currently have a Scart
    connector to the Loewe video recorder and the cable TV box

    I seem to remember that you had to short 2 pins on the interface, I had
    a French Tompson TV that I used as a monitor on my first home computer,
    an Atari. I had a switch connected into the SCART connector that
    switched between the TV and the computer.

    Strangely enough I also had an Akai TV that had a SCART connector, maybe
    that model was also sold in Europe.
    Haven't seen them for years except in the bins at Jaycar.
