Hi,

The more I read the more I get confused.

My JVC decks have Scart/ 4 pin S video outputs

A lot of capture devices have 3 ports

Y Port
B-Y S video - Y
R-Y S video - C

My scart cable has 3 rca tails and I know I can attach the yellow connector to the Y port
But as Iíve read the worst quality transfer.

But as Iíve read -S video is the better way to go-
So can I get a 4 pin S video cable that can connect as described above ?

Sorry if I sound as thick as a badger

Thanks Tom 🍀

Most capture devices have 4 sockets: Composite video (yellow) red and white for Audio, and an S-video socket.

If you have S-video Out on your VCR, that's the best. Get an S-Video cable and use it to connect your VCR to your capture device.

The capture device doesnít have a S video 4 pin connection it only has the 3 BNC type connectors I described ?

Thanks Tom

Arrh, sorry, I'd lost track of your "capture device".

I recall @Latreche34 showing a pic of a cable that did what you want; he had a TBC that used BNCs. Hopefully he will be along to elaborate.
