Yep. but not all of us have SCART as an option...
As for my GBS, sorry no good pics handy.
I have this one:
That shows a bit of it running LED STORM (doesn't show off anything good), but I centered on the GBS itself.
Also, ignore the wire going into the A520. I used that initially (gutted it for it's DB23) until I bought a DB23 just for the GBS.
Now I have my Amigamaniac s-video adapter in the A520. ;-)
One issue with the s-video adapters is that you have the same NTSC/PAL issues that you would have with composite. That can be a REAL PAIN. That's the main reason to have a true monitor (or RGB to VGA solution that scales up).
As for the flyback, it can be replaced, but I think it's not easy to get the part anymore.. Easier to get another monitor.
(If you don't want to buy a DB23, you can take a DB25 (much easier to find or probably have one lying around) and cut it up to make it fit the DB23)
p.s. Here's a post with some pics: http://eab.abime.net/showpost.php?p=759262&postcount=16
(ooohhh.. Those aren't good pics.. bad example.. but he says that in the post... ;-)
