My (planned) setup in a nutshell:
Sony Betamax SL-HF950 / JVC HR-S8960
ATI TV Wonder 600 USB
As you may have noticed I am in PAL land. For the Betamax VCR that presents a slight problem as it only outputs scart or composite. In order to capture with the ATI TV Wonder 600 USB (through the TBC) I can choose either to use the composite or S-video. Off course I prefer the better S-video, but it has to be converted from the scart output. I have a simple (but gold plated) scart converter that (in theory) can do the job, but I am not sure this will give the best results.
- Are there quality differences with respect to the converters or is that they simply work or don't work?
- Does the Sony Betamax SL-HF950 even output s-video through the scart?
- Am I, quality wise, better off using the composite output of the Sony Betamax SL-HF950?
Other suggestions/advice on the setup is welcome as well.
