There are two different wirings used in SCART sockets found on the backs of TVs. The original SCART socket allowed input of either composite or RGB video. Later, as S-video emerged, an evolved SCART socket began to appear that allowed input of either S or composite video. This scheme requires the use of an RGB-capable SCART socket! Some TV have 3 SCART sockets - the first is a black coloured socket that is wired for composite and RGB video and the others are orange coloured sockets that are wired for S and composite video. Older or lower-end sets with one SCART socket are usually wired for composite and RGB video.
