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:

DIN SIDE --- SCART SIDE
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 ;-)

I am making the same cable and wondering about pin 4 (luminance) in the DIN side not being used.
I guess it's ok, but then why is it there?

Cheers Smile

The luminance signal was used for monochrome monitors (mostly green or amber models). I guess it gives the clearest picture on such monitors, better than feeding the composite color signal.

yep. in nl most monitors/tv's are rgb and a seprate composite. but using a scart/rgb conector and on the 8020 the composite it will be composite.

the frensh 8020 version got rgb i think. like the yashica so if you copy that part and build it in your 8020 you got rgb.
But i like composite more on a msx1 becourse its made for it. when i draw gfx i use that color bleading for more color fx on msx1

I'm sorry, yes true. It isn't a RGB connector. I saw the VG 8020 manual but the video output is composite only.
