    So I decided to mod my Dreamcast with gdemu and it look like crap composite so I bought a toro and I already have the OSSC but was not sure how to connect both the toro and OSSC to the Dreamcast together so I bought a SCART cable from retroaccess https://retro-access.com/collections/scart-to-scart-jp-21-to-scart-hookups-etc/products/copy-of-jp-21-to-scart-cable-pro-coaxial-multicore-for-switch-boxes

    Will this work is my question cause I paid 36$ ?

    Yes it should work.
    However, you don’t need a Toro (unless you absolutely need RGBHV for a VGA monitor, afaik). Just get a direct Scart cable with selector switch for 480i/480p. Easier and cheaper.

    Retrogaming cables also has one (unfortunately out of stock).

    Retro access are notorious for never being able to keep up with demand.

    Yeah I noticed so is there shipping it’s been weeks and they still haven’t shipped my order .i emailed them twice and no answer either .but now they say that the cable that Harrumph was suggesting from them will be available on the 22 on this month from 1-2 pm . Are they cables any good ?

    They seem to be very good yes, I’ve had one of their cables break down though and as you say it’s pretty difficult to contact them if things do go wrong.

    Ok thanks hopefully nothing will go wrong that I’m forced to contact them . And yeah they finally emailed me back after 3 emails I had to get assertive on the 3rd one and cross my fingers they wouldnt cancel my order but they sent me a link to check ETA status of orders by order # mines looks promising for by the end of this month .
