Out of interest, did that HDMl converter work in the end?  I have tried several 
over the years and none have been able to lock onto a SAM SCART output.  They 
were less sophisticated models by the looks of it though.  I still use an old 
TV, but I think it's on it's way out!

True, the SAM SCART cable is a special one. Either you make one yourself or you 
order from Colin (http://www.samcoupe.com/). I once managed to reverse an 
original SAM cable and did not pay attention to the labels “TV” and “SAM”. This 
also lead to a black screen.

You need a special Scart cable. The wiring is in the manual. Alternative is the 
Composite Video and Audio signal from the Power socket.

All the electronics have arrived, but when I connect it all up, there is no

My disk light flashes on power up and when I push the f9 key, but no video 

Is it possible I need a special SCART cable (I have seen one on eBay)?

I am running out of ideas as to what could be wrong.

That HDMI upscaler is PERFECT for Sam/Speccy/ZX81/QL 😉

I use it for all 4 machines 😉

Oggetto: Advice requested

Thanks to some generous relatives, I have had my Sam shipped over from the UK 
to the USA (where I now live).

Voltage is not a concern, step up converters are cheap on Amazon. But I would 
like to be able to display the image from the Sam on my TV and unfortunately 
SCART sockets were never put on American TVs.

What would be the best option for converting the SCART to an HDMI connector? 
Would something like this be OK?


Any help/advice gratefully accepted.
