If you have a both a dual phono to phono audio cable and S-Video
cable, you might want to track down a cheap S-Video/Audio to SCART
adapter. This allows you to connect the cables directly to the SCART
socket via the adapter. The adapters can also have a directional input
so that they work both ways (for SCART input and SCART output).
Also, maybe try tracking down the operating manual for the TV to see
whether it supports S-Video input via its SCARTs.
