Was there ever produced a mini LCD TV with SCART input?
The smallest I have found is 14" and this is CRT.

Hi,

the smallest TFT I found is
MAJESTIC TVD-215 TV LED 15"

Amazn says it has SCART input.

Hi,

you want it for video only or audio, too?

SCART supports various video interfaces, which one do you want to use?

A far better alternative would be to buy a Raspberry Pi, the cost is almost the same and you get a more modern HDMI connection for A/V as well as composite and audio, an Ethernet port, USB for keyboard/mouse/memory/expansion, Camera interface, more IO pins and certainly FAR more speed.
As they use Linux there is a huge range of software available too, including BASIC and C.

I appreciate it is a display you are looking for but I would question whether it is worth investing in one to match old technology when more versatile ones are available and more future proof.

Brian.

I understand why you say this, ok.
However, it is a hobbyist one chip computer, based on a general purpose MCU and an ingenious firmware written in assembly. No way you can compare this to a Raspberry. You compare a thing which is made to emulate a micro of the 80s with a modern embedded system with OS. And it is a computer you can build yourself from scratch (well, if an MCU IC is considered a scratch thing anyway). That last bit is probably the biggest difference, which sets apart the two systems.
So yeah, different system, different ideas.

I have built this http://cb2.qrp.gr/extensions/#8_Color_composite_videoS-video of course, but the scart is better in quality.
Now I am using it with a 15" crt but I thought it would be better, for X-ray radiation issues to have an LCD instead of sitting in front and close to the CRT.

Well I could alter a modern low-size LCD of course and built this adapter inside it, but I thought if there was already a scart LCD of that sizes on the market.
