The presence of an RGB signal may need to be signalled with a voltage on a SCART pin. I guess that this is a somewhat academic question, because in my attic, I do have a working Commodore 1084 monitor (aka Philips CM8833) that accepts analog RGB, digital RGBI, and Y/C as well as composite video. Actually, before I got the 1084 for free, I had modified my Sony TV so that it would output a voltage on some unused SCART pin, and I could use a loopback inside the SCART plug to signal the presence of RGB. With this and a D/A converter built from a resistor ladder, I could see C128 VDC RGBI output on the TV. I had a switch at the SCART end of the cable, so that I could choose between VIC-IIe and VDC screen. Not as handy as the 1084, which has a switch in the front panel.
