No S-Video on my video unfortunatly. I can only use Scart.

I use antenna out->antenna in.
Do you mean RF out? There's no way i'd use that. The quality is terrible.

RF Out is the same as Antenna out and probably looks just like composite out. Try getting a signal from Scart to Antenna in, chances are it gives better quality, depending on how your Scart cable pins are actually connected.

So are you saying that RF in is better than S-Video?
I always thought that RF was the worst way to connect video equipment.

It's quite likely you cannot get anything else than composite out of the VCR, be it from Scart or wherever. You can try going from Scart to S-video, but I doubt that it will be any better than going to Antenna in/RF in. Using Scart might provide better shielding for the signal even if it goes as composite.

Ok. I'll try it both ways and see which is better.
I think your right about the shielding, so Scart may turn out the best option.
Cheers Boulder!
