I am doing video editing with my computer and I have come across an obstacle: I only have a HiFi VCR with component out. Now, I can use component out. But here is what I was wondering. You know how a copy will degrade or look worse after every copy. Will a "composite to S-Video" converter eliminate the a video from being degraded when copied. I am asking this because these adapters claim that the video will only look as good as the composite. I know that Monster sells a converter for about $99(but, you might as well get a new S-VHS VCR for only $30 more if your gonna buy this converter ). Other off brands sell theirs for about $8-$39.
