I don't think those exist... I've searched far and wide, but every 
SCART<->S-Video adapter (cable or plug type) I've ever found was only 
for *input* of a S-Video signal. Even the ones that are switchable 
between input and output only actually switch the audio and composite 
video connectors.

If someone knows of a definite way to get a S-Video signal out of a 
SCART connector, please let me know! I desperately need it to connect my 
digital cable box (which only has SCART connectors) to my projector 
(which only has a S-Video connector available).
