[mythtv-users] recording from SCART

I have a cable that came with one of those wireless video transfer 
boxes. The cable that goes to the transmitter has a composite connector, 
which is OK for now.
I bought the whole wireless video setup for 35€ and have no use for it 
any more, so I can salvage the cable. :-D

SCART pinouts are very easy to find. It's pretty easy to change a 
SCART-in to a SCART-out cable. My soldering iron is still in a box 
somewhere, so this will have to wait.
In the mean time I can set up my PVR-150 and get the channel change 
scripts working with my MS USB Remote IR blaster.
