I am in the process of playing with my receiver and hooking up an S-video output from my receiver to my monitor. I currently have a VCR running on RCA connections into the receiver... and this picture should be delivered to the monitor under the S-video setting. If I attempt to view under the S-video input label on my monitor...I get no picture. However I noticed that if I hook an RCA into the video output on the receiver and set the monitor to that setting ...it does work. I have a suspicion that if I hook up my Laserdisc..which has an S-video out... to the receiver..it will work under the S-Video setting on the monitor. Question...are S-Video connectors only capable of transmitting S-video quality signals or better?
