So I have a VHS.

It has a scart socket on the back.

then I will connect scart to? quadra or quadra & Commodore 1084s monitor?

the 2 choices are :-

vhs to quadra to 3 monitors

or

vhs to Commodore 1084s monitor as well as Quadra 840av(with 2 monitors attached.).

I hope this makes sense.

What is this "scart" socket? Is that the same as composite, or RCA?

Assuming it is, all I know in this situation is that any video that's put into a Quadra 840av is only going to display on one monitor, the monitor that's attached to the 840av's onboard video. Unfortunately, the 840av will not display video coming through its composite or S-video inputs on a nubus-based graphics display card.

Yes we have loadsa things with scart sockets on, We mainly use them for copying HOME MADEvideo's.

It seems a largley european thing

I think maybe the dutch did it so's they could mass produce amateur porn?

Is that a really offensive comment.

hope not.

SCART is mainly a European thing. You can find them on cheap imports here, too.

Scart is not at all common here (US/Canada), I this is the first time that I have heard of such a connector. It sounds interesting, and rather elegant way of connecting devices to each other though, and it would be nice to see them here in the US/Canada.

NOOO! SCART MUST NOT come to America, or else that completely ERASES ALL possibility of there being a market for the Genecomp Personal Media Centre!!

I've known about SCART for ages, although i've only seen one TV IRL that actually had SCART sockets on it. Methinks its a european thing.
