  • SCART was the way to go here in Germany. Next to audio it could carry three different types of video signals RGB, Composite and S-Video. RGB has the best quality of course but most cables that came with consoles only carried composite and a fitting RGB-cable had to be bought seperately. I still have an adapter laying around somewhere that is only a small connector that goes into SCART and on the other side is composite, L/R audio as cinch connectors and S-Video. Even modern TVs that still has SCART can display RGB over it and they are still able to accept 15khz RGB signals of for example an Commodore Amiga. I still use my Amiga 500 over SCART but it also got a scandoubler so I can hook it up to modern VGA monitors.

  • I'm not a gamer but over 10 yrs ago built a PC. Haven't been able to set it up a use it since early 2010. I installed an Nvida card that had 2 ports, 1 was SVGA the other I believe was DVI. It enabled me to set up a dual monitor system so I could have my photo editing work area on one screen and menus / tool bars on the other. And yes the CPU was / is an AMD Athalon 32/64 bit processor. The heavier cable on the DVI caused me to switch from a tower to a desktop case, as the heavier cable would partially unseat the video card grrr.

  • The SCART did actually pretty widely standarize in Europe, but it was known by another name, in Spain at least: Euroconector. So much so, that if you ask the average user what a SCART is, you probably won't get an answer.

  • I think everything should be replaced with USB, including HDMI and network. Superspeed USB is more than enough to transmit 4k60fps video and that's with a very naive approach (basically transfer raw, uncompressed RGB frames), with compression you could probably fit it into USB3 connection.

  • We use HDBaseT at work all the time. I really wish it was more affordable, because it would be so useful in so many situations. Even just in your home AV setup, it could take the place of so much complicated cabling AND you can run it through a switch and route it wherever you want!

  • I associated the 13W3 connectors with Sun gear (and another variant with 4 coax connectors for monochrome). DVI was a sort of predecessor to HDMI, with a chunkier connector (in a few variants, for digital, analog, and combined: the digital variant is the same signalling as HDMI). There was also a welter of other weird ones, like the DE-9 monochrome that PCs used, or the DIN-13 monochrome used by Atari. Commodore had a nonstandard size 23-pin D-sub style connector as well.
