A SCART to HDMI adapter enabling use of older DVD and VHS players and legacy games consoles on your modern HDTV or HD projector. Compatible with SCART PAL and NTSC output formats, it will upscale a standard definition signal to 720p or 1080p output for improved viewing quality. You can also pass through a HDMI connection, splitting out the audio over a digital coaxial connection or a analogue 3.5mm Jack, ideal for running audio from a games console or AV player to headphones, or from a Blu-Ray/DVD player to a dedicated surround sound system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it says After a run in with an unusable UI of a new decoder, I decided to use the old one and get this SCART to HDMI converter. The converter works fine and on its own I'd give it a 5 star rating. It loses one because the instructions included are pretty useless. It basically is a schematic showing there the SCART cable goes and where the HDMI cable goes. Well, that part is pretty obvious on its own. The bit which took me a day to figure out is that when you TV stubbornly says "No Signal", you need to try the 3 little buttons next to the coaxial slot, and presto, signal. On one of the picture ratios the display starts moving down in a rather jerky way and it was a bit tricky to re-set but I suspect that's not the fault of the converter but the signal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Also upscales! I bought this to connect old games consoles to my Sony sound stage which handles all of my TV's inputs. I thought it was a little pricey but I needed something quick so grabbed it anyway. Turns out it also upscales the input which is not mentioned on the box. My Nintendo 64 without it looks awful but through the box looks ten times better on my 40" LCD. Very impressed, an X-RGB would cost double this so this is definitely worth the £50

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what the doctor ordered!!!! I bought my Maplin SCART to HDMI Adapter to connect my cherished VHS Machine (and tapes) to my new HDMI only TV. This amazingly solid Adapter replaced a very flimsy "cheaper" version bought elsewhere, that had only lasted for less than 3 days before totally blowing its' circuit and failing! What an amazing piece of kit my Maplin Adapter is! Solid construction, perfect connections, a flexible range of signal / lines options and a brilliant up-scaled VHS picture and sound that I can now really enjoy on my 50" Flatscreen TV! It may have cost me more than the flimsy and unreliable connector it replaced, but the quality and reliability it provides, together with a far superior picture, (and it comes with a Maplin Guarantee to boot), makes it well worthwhile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Straightforward and well made By my experience this product could bear the description 'plug and use' as that is exactly how it functioned. Delighted with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well Good product, does exactly what it says on the box and website description. I use it to connect my older Scart Gamecube to convert the signal to HDMI For my two monitors, have only tested it on my 35" so far but it works well with it I am pleased.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless Instructions Bought this and thought it would be easy to connect, no real options of connecting to wrong places but just get No Signal when I try to play the DVD, did as someone else suggested and try options through buttons 8, 9 & 10. Still nothing, waste of space and money

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Video Saver Since we have just purchased a new TV with no scart input, and we have hundreds of videos, we can see them on our video/dvd player. Quality is not as good as our blue ray, but that is to be expected. A good buy.
