Doesn't seem to output pass True S-Video or RGB Scart. Only composite.
on 22 July 2016
I bought this product because I own a capture card that takes S-Video and a lot of old games consoles that only output in European video standards like RGB scart. I wanted an adaptor that would let me connect my RGB Scart output my Gamecube and connect it to the S-Video input on the capture card. The result only half works, the connecting this adapter between the two cables allows me to capture a fill colour, full resolution picture from the Scart output which is useful for devices that only have Scart, however, the picture appears to be the same as composite. Colours come through a bit better than the standard Composite cable from the Gamecube did, but there is a LOT of distortion.
I suspect what is happening is that the adapter does not actually convert anything directly to S-Video, but converts to Composite, for the composite out, and then converts that again to S-Video hence none of the benefits of the better RGB output carry across. If you want this adapter simple to convert composite to scart, or vice versa, it's probably fine, but if you want it for the S-Video, you'll probably have the same luck if you just hook up the composite cables.
