If you want to stay original, you could try running your Dreamcast through VGA on your OSSC. You’d need to adjust the aspect ratio for correct output, but that shouldn’t be a problem for your OSSC. Some games don’t give output on VGA, so beware of that – most do, however, even some where it’s not printed on the box (Shadow Man and Soul Reaver for instance). The list of non-VGA games is quite short, although it does contain some classics. Alternatively, you could equip your Dreamcast with a GDEmu and patch non-VGA games to run through VGA.

As BuckoA51 states, it seems you’ve got a composite to SCART connector (most PAL consoles are shipped with that actually). While that does work on a TV, it doesn’t work on an OSSC as it lacks the hardware to accept composite in any form. You could get a Koryuu and hook that up to your OSSC, that way you can directly link composite and S-Video to your OSSC.
