Do you get visual through a scart lead?

A scart connector is a European standard for video, audio and control communication between domestic television equipment. It is used only for standard definition video but supports composite, S-video and component signal formats. It also carries stereo audio and a limited number of control lines. The connection is often bi-directional to allow an output of a television to be routed to a video recorder as well as from the recorder to the television. The scart connection is being replaced by HDMI in new equipment so the days of the 21 pin scart connector are numbered. The signals are compatible with those on phono (RCA) connectors so equipment that does not have a scart connector can still be linked using a scart to phono break out lead.

You were thinking of buying a new tv but the one you want doesnt have a scart plug input so you were wondering if using a scart to usb converter and plugging that into the tv would work?

Scart connectors are a European video and audio standard for analog video signals. They have been commonly used as links between video recorders and televisions as they provide a single wire interface between the two. The signals used in a scart connector vary but they can include composite, S-video, RGB and component video. All of them are analog signals. Most new televisions do not offer scart connectors but the signals are almost always available on alternative inputs. Composite will usually have a single yellow phono socket (RCA socket), component will have three phono sockets S-video will have a 4 pin mini-din socket for example. There are a range of scart adaptor cables that have a scart plug at one end and separate video and audio connectors at the other. Select the type that is needed and it should all work fine. To answer the question specifically, a scart to USB adaptor sounds like a video capture device for use in a computer and is not the right thing to use in a television, even if the television has USB sockets.
