I'm a little fuzzy on this point. My recollection is that S-Video keeps two of the picture elements separate (but allows the 3rd to be combined with one of the other signals). This is a compromise compared to component video (all three separate). When using a newer set with a superior comb filter, would it be better to just use composite video instead of S-video (assuming no component is available on source)? Question pertains to VCR & game systems which have S-Video and composite only.
