This cable converts any S-Video signal to a composite video signal. It can also work the other way and convert any composite video signal to a S-Video signal. This S-Video to RCA converter plugs directly into your video equipment. A tiny converter filtering circuit is built inside the cable. It is great for solving video connection problems when not all components have composite and S-Video inputs or outputs. Its low signal loss circuitry allows two-way conversion from composite to S-Video. Use this cable to connect video sources to a TV, VCR, video capture card or any device with S-Video or composite RCA connections! Note: this item will convert the composite signal to be viewed on a S-Video input, the signal will only be as good as the original signal.
