You can't get RGB scart LD - all you're getting is composite over scart. Depending on what player you have and whether you're using a video processor, composite is the best source for LD, because that's its native format.I found the SCART output pretty good, and it definitely didn't feel like composite video in terms of quality, presumably due to a nice comb filter as LD was never RGB, of course. I recently moved the LD player back onto my rack so I can play some stuff, which I might copy to a DVD recorder or straight to MP4 via a ClonerAlliance ViewPro.
A QQ- is it worth running the SCART through an OSSC first before connecting to the DVD recorder etc? I've used OSSC a lot for retro games but not for recording AV stuff. Ditto question for VHS rips. I recently ripped Crapston Villas VHS tapes onto DVDR via SCART (as only part of 1 of the 2 series is available on DVD), but didn't bother with an OSSC, which might have been a mistake in hindsight.
Anyway... there's always a place for Neo Geo and LD...
