Any British Dreamcast owners kind enough to sell/give away DC RGB/Scart cable? (1 Viewer)

??? Im planning to build a VGA box that works with imports, but then over here in canada, the Svideo cables and Composite cables' dreamcast connectors dont have all the connections needed to use a VGA Box... The SCART cable for the DC does have all the necessary ones...
I dont care if its broken or what, as long as the end that goes into the dreamcast isn't damaged, its okay... i dont care about anything else, just the connector that hooks up to the DC...
I need one very bad, and cannot find a used one anywhere around here... I dont wanna pay $15 for a SCART cable either unless i absolutely have to...
I'll pay shipping and other fees... Please?!

It may not be an ideal solution, but if you can't get anyone to send you a second-hand one, would this UK VGA adaptor do the trick instead?

You're lucky they have it. You have to remember that hardly anyone in the US has a SCART TV, and that they probably sell about 2 of these a year. Plus the UK is expensive to begin with, import fees and shipping and there you go

Dan,
Why would you drop SCART RGB to go with S-Video? Because of not wanting to switch cables behind your TV (DVD DC)?
Just curious...

Chrisitan, that's exactly it. Lazy I know, but it's tiresome to reach round the back of the old Sony WEGA all the time, s-video in the front was so much easier.
The 3 Scarts round the back of my TV, I have RGB coming from the DVD, s-video to scart coming out of my Tag Mclaren processor, and scart connection from the VCR.
Anyhoo, Nick, I can't locate my old DC scart cable.

Actually, I'll have a look around my pile of cables, I /may/ have brought a DC SCART cable over with me when I moved to the UK. Doubt it though.
