Retropie 240p 15 KHz RGB SCART TV Guide

@GoogleBot Thanks! I didn't explore much of the AV function as even before I purchased the RPi 3 I always wanted to go straight to RGB, the difference is phenomenal.
What I did find out though is that the AV port did not output 240p but 480i, and that was another factor for me to use the HDMI/VGA route. You can buy or build your own RGB to NTSC or PAL transcoder with a few components using a and get composite 240p though.

t0nito would be grateful for new schematics/diagram for making vga to scart :)
I am at the very beginning of my way to make such connection. I have HDMI to VGA connector but I am curious about combining Hsync and Vsync. Not sure to what kind of CRT you have connected to Pi but I want to find solution for both consumer CRT and Sony BVM.

@rion I haven't asked for adapters but for diagram for the cable he made and that's a different story.

@melvin-fox it's just a simple vga to scart wire nothing special ... You can build one yourself just google rgb vga to scart

Sure but VGA has Vsync and Hsync separately and CRT TVs (typical ones, not PVMs) uses Csync which is combined. You can't just join those two pins to one sync so my question is about the diagram as there are few but haven't found one that someone built and checked...

@melvin-fox but your ouput isn't vga its RGB 15hz vga is just the cable that feeds the signal. Well I combined them on my dreamcast on pi seems to work fine for my crts
But it's RGBHV not RGBC :)

@melvin-fox The diagram is on the original post but I will link it here in case you missed it:
Anyway you just don't join the Hsync and Vsync together, you must put a 1k resistor on each line before combining them together.
