I knew most of that, but I wasn't sure if SCART was limited to PAL 
resolutions, and thus not usable for HD, which seems to be the case.

My knowledge of SCART is limited to what I have read here, since I've never 
worked on anything but USA systems.

We used to have some PYE-TVT (UK-built) transmitters, whose exciters had SCART 
connectors, but I never used them or paid any attention to them, we just sent 
composite video into the BNC connectors and audio into the A3F ("canon", "XLR" 
or "QG") connectors. Those rigs are now presumably part of the WTC debris at 
Fresh Kills.
