Hello,

Still thinking if we can press some juice from European S-VHS player with SCART output?

Since YPbPr > S-VIDEO

SCART allow RGB analog component video.

If I use a RGB (SCART) to Component (YPbPr) Video Converter.

Is it possible to capture YPbPr component signal with a set-up similar for s-video?

Thanks

You can record both RGB and YPbPr with any capture card. I have developed this technique, however it's easier if you can buy a component card

However there's no point, as VHS is originally stored in an S-Video like signal.
I have also done the experiment of storing my own design of signal to VHS, to do component. Yes it looks great, but still blurry.

This is the correct answer.

VHS is heterodyned/color-under recording, which results in downconverted chroma/color + luminance/detail.
It's very similar to s-video (separated video) which is luma + chroma.

Composite is a single luma/chroma signal. All data is in a single data stream. (Laserdisc is composite.)

I got hypnotized by RBG Scart feature forgetting about basic VHS signal

There are lots of pretty / shiny money pits in the realm of video.
