When I try to play Chrono Trigger (US) on my European SNES (with the help of a converter cartridge called 'UA universal adaptor expert version') that's hooked up to a scart-to-hdmi converter device that's hooked up to my PC monitor, I get completely messed up colors on the screen. It's like I am seeing 4-bit colors; red, blue and green ugly all over. Just like when your SCART cable is improperly inserted on your old tv (remember?). However that's not the problem because the SCART is inserted firmly into the converter box.
To troubleshoot, I tried hooking up my SNES console to my regular old TV through SCART only and there was no problem there. The colors displayed perfectly.
So what is causing the colors to be displayed incorrectly on my flat panel monitor? Is it the scart-to-hdmi box that's doing this? Is it the monitor that's doing this? My monitor works perfectly with everything else (xbox, PC, ..) even with the same HDMI cable used. From what I read, that converter box 'automatically' switches between PAL and NTSC signal.
Here is my setup:

- My scart-to-hdmi converter upscaler box: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SCART-HDMI-1080p-HD-UPSCALER-Converter-Adapter-Sky-Wii-VHS-STB-DVD-HDTV-/300614927083
- My SNES: PAL European
- Cabling: I'm using a gold plated HDMI 3-star cable I think (regular HD resolution).
