No Microvitec cub ever had a SCART socket.

There were serveral models. Most has RGB inputs, which were internally
link-selectable to be either TTL level digital (giving 8 colours on the
screen), or 1V analogue. I think all models had separate sync inputs.

There was a model (which I have never seen!) which had a built-in PAL
decoder. This took 1V composite video. The input was a BNC socket IIRC.

I don't know what a 'PAL RGB' signal is. PAL is a method of colour
encoding, RGB implies separate signals for the 3 primary colours. One
signal can't be both!
