I've tried the noscale setting (720x480Noscale in the US) but didn't
notice any difference.  I've not physically disconnected the VGA,
however.  I just disabled it in the BIOS.  That would be an easy one to
test.  I'll try that tonight.

My S-Video is not to SCART.  It's just a simple 4 pin to 4 pin

Thanks for the tips.
