    I currently have an RCA to S-Video adapter for my VCR. I was wondering if you can buy an S-Video cable and terminate one end with an RCA plug.
    Could you just group the four wires inside an S-Video cable into two and then terminate with the RCA end?

    Acually, you can buy an adaptor from Radioshack... don't know the part number, but it's $19.99. It will allow you to join an S-video cable and a composite cable together. The picture quality won't be the greatest, but it does work. Radioshack also sells an S-video switch that will allow switching of up to 4 video sources of either S-video or composite.... it will also convert composite to S-video.
    Hope that helps... let me know if you want the part numbers...

    Thanks, but I already have an adapter. See original post.
    I was just looking for a way to get rid of the adapter.
