    An RGB scart cable will give a noticeably better picture than a composite cable.

    Nope, PS2 onwards but would still fit the port.
    RGB SCART -> S-Video -> composite/composite to SCART converter -> RF

    RGB is the best you'll get, it's been supported by PS1 & PS2 globally since 1994. Even American units where few people care.

    RBG Scart is supported, so our PAL friends get the best picture. We NTSC folks need to use a RGB Scart to YUV Component converter.
