Hi guys,
I spent many time to build tha correct DIN to SCART/RGB cable for Philips MSX VG-8020/20 PAL (QWERTY keyboard layout).
At the end my working cable is:

3 -> 6 (Audio IN left)
5 -> 20 (CVBS/video in)
2 -> 4,17 (Audio and Video ground)
6 -> 8 (Status CVBS +12V) - Used for auto select tha AV channel on TV.

The image and sound is very good Nishi
Now I'm happy!!! Running Naked in a Field of Flowers

Don't want to be disrespectful, but this has nothing to do with RGB output.

It's basically video + ground and audio + ground to scart. You won't get better picture quality than the original monitor cable that came with the vg-8020 (DIN to RCA video and RCA audio).

Or did that monitor cable come with certain Philips monitors ? Can't remember, to be honest. oO

But, if it helps you with your setup, that's nice.

I needed to make a cable from scratch and had no example, so this post came in handy. But yeah, I guess it's technically composite and not RGB ;-)
