It's a bit old, but the tech should still hold true.

It depends entirely on the quality of the SCART to component converting box, which can vary between different makes and models. For what it's worth, the BA6592F offers excellent quality.Any idea how straight component would compare to SCART >>> component?
Here's a question. I noticed that the chip takes raw RGB and "clamps" it (not entirely sure what this means), and then converts it to component to output. I've noticed the encoders on other systems (CXA1645, etc.) do this as well and that's what you get for the RGB output on those systems. What would happen if you sent this chip an already clamped RGB signal? Would the quality of the output be significantly worse, or would it not work at all?
I ask because you might be able to just get away with a custom cable that has that chip installed in it to do the conversion for you similar to what the Gamecube Component cables do. That way you wouldn't have to do any internal modding to your system, just use a different cable.
That would be virtually impossible if you're using something like a CXA1645 or CXA2075. Their application circuits have too many components to just fit in a cable. It'd be much easier to put all that in a box which has a Nintendo Multi-AV cable and standard jacks mounted on the box.I ask because you might be able to just get away with a custom cable that has that chip installed in it to do the conversion for you similar to what the Gamecube Component cables do.

Besides, one might as well just put the BA6592F inside a plastic project box and then mount composite/S-video/component jacks on the panels.
Damn, I was looking forward to seeing your work. I'll have to see if one of my parts systems is the right model, although it might be a while before I get around to it.
For you guys that have done it, does the SNES still exhibit the vertical line problem that is prevalent in S-Video and higher video sources?

I should probably mention this though. Because I don't have audio RCA jacks implemented on my system yet, I still use a mutli-AV cable for sound. With just component video running, the picture looks fine, has the vertical bar on a black screen and honestly it looks very slightly pale. When I have audio connected via the mutli-AV port, the picture gains a very slight green tint and from what I see, that vertical bar isn't visible anymore. However, black screens have a slight green tint as well. Not really sure what's going on here... the tinting here is extremely slight, it's only noticeable when actively connecting/disconnecting the mutli-AV port.
