Death To The Scart Article Submitted by Sat.CO Tel: 657484853 Since the early 1980s we have all struggled with the SCART lead when connecting various boxes to our TVs.

Remember the modern TV is not just a TV but a multi media display and should have an onboard media browser so that you can connect your computer, camera, hard drives, ethernet for the internet, etc. Also, most TVs are capable of reading memory devices as MP3 (music) MP4 (video) SD cards from your camera etc.
