SCART cable with NO separate audio cables?

Hi folks,

I have a great SCART-to-HDMI scaler, and I would like to use it to connect an old Amiga 500 to my A/V receiver. It works well with an Atari ST, where I get the picture and sound through SCART. For the Amiga, however, I seem to find only SCART-cables where the sound is only available through two separate break-out audio cables; as a result, I get no sound over HDMI.

Does anyone know of a SCART cable for the Amiga which also transports the sound through SCART instead of separate audio cables?

Thanks,
Marcel

Yep, the Amiga doesn't output sound on the monitor port so you need a SCART with audio connections to the Amiga's audio sockets. These are relatively common though, you could make or modify your own or buy one like these:

I've never seen an Amiga SCART cable without sound.

Can we see a picture of it, or is it top secret ?

I had one many, many years ago. Think it was an actual Commodore one, heavy duty video cable and it didn't have sound. That's the only one I've ever seen like that though, every other one has sound.

Most Scart to DB9 Amiga monitor cables do not have audio break outs either.

Yeah, because they're not scart cables and have no way of transferring sound.

Wrong. Pins 1+3 are reserved for audio left and right channel and pin 4 is common audio ground. I just recently modded an A500 to fit an internal rgb-scart port with audio.

Oh sorry totally misread your post
