I have read (but never seen) and I may be misremembering, but some PAL S-Video machines were marketed in the Gulf states? I have sold Betamax machines to Quatar so I gather Betamax was rather successful over there, but I guess money wasn't really a limiting factor for many.

We have machines with SCART, but they only output composite with a funky connector.

Of course, it's theoretically possible to hack S-Video into any colour-under machine, but it's a faff I don't need - I'm sure it's been done though.
