im not sure its that simple to be honest... Scart only carries analogue signals whereas HDMI is digital

just looking around, there doesnt seem to be much out there.

There are HDMI to Component Video but not particularily cheap options (£60-70).

Im guessing you have a TV with only Scart inputs? Might be time to look at a cheap HD Tv?
Certainly if youre going to be viewing BluRay on that new player

I assume you require this converter because your TV does not have HDMI connections (only Scart)?
 
I`m doubt if there is anything on the market to do what you require, there are Scart to HDMI converters but they covert in the wrong direction, ie:
 
Scart output (low quality) > HDMI/Scart Converter > HDMI connection to TV (which has been upscaled to high quality)
 
What you`re potentially trying to do is the reverse, ie:
 
HDMI output (High quality from Blu Ray) > HDMI/Scart Converter > Scart connection on TV (low quality)
 
Only two possible solutions if you wanna connect via HDMI to the Blu Ray player, either buy a converter and hope for the best (although I`m doubtful of the outcome) or speculate on a new TV with HDMI connections - it truly is worth it for the difference in picture qualityBig smile

Yes indeed, there wasn't much point buying a blueray if your only going to watch it through scart!
You need to use HDMI to get the best viewing, that and a HD TV.

They not that expensive now either you can pick up a half decent HD TV for a couple hundred quid!
