    Does this composite to s-vid convertor work the other way? I want to connect my s-vid out on my computer to the composite-in on my tv. Thanks.

    I think so. I think the composite out just has a non-polarized capacitor between the Y and C pins (pin 3 and 4) of the S-video connector, so it should go either way.

    I'm not sure....
    The reason I say that is because Parts Express sells a composite to s-video converter and an s-video to composite converter.....
    There may be some difference...they look the same, but have different part numbers.

    Yes, they DO work and no, there is no difference functionally between the two parts. The only difference you get is between a female composite with a male svideo plug or a male composite with a female svideo plug. It depends on what cable you want to use. If you want to use an svideo cable, then get the one with the female svideo side. I personally use this because the signals are combined only at the last moment and is carried on separate wires throughout the length of the cable.
