Sorry if I revive an already existing thread, but this information might be useful to retro computing fans living in NTSC countries.

I think the easiest way to connect retro computers to TV sets is by using SCART cables, which were unfortunately unknown in the US, Japan, etc.

As I didn't want to spend a lot of money on video converters, I have decided to get my own SCART connector here in Japan.

Here are the parts I had to buy:

(and a USB C cable for power I already had)


Provided your TV set has YPbPr input, you can have an easy SCART connector for quite a good price.
