Silly question,

Why wouldn't you just look for an svideo->SCART adapter for the M10k? 
Are there VGA->SCART adapters?  I'm on the wrong side of the pond to
have any first hand experience with SCART so forgive my ignorance ;)

*shrug* If you have an otherwise working setup with the m10k, unless
you're enjoying yourself working on the modded xbox... why not a
simple solution?
