SCART is just a connector. It allows:
    Composite Video and RGB connection    OR
    Composite Video and S-Video connection..      (There are two sorts of
connections TVs often have one of each, otherwise it's usually the
CompositeVideo+RGB type).

You can build a very simple converter circuit that takes the VGA signal from
your motherboard and allows you to feed it into the SCART connector as RGB.
This is MUCH better quality than composite video.

Pretty much all decent TVs sold in europe will have SCART (RGB) connections
available and most DVD players will be able to output RGB signals.

Look in the  wiki for details....
