For anyone with a JVC VCR/DVD combo unit from the 2000s with S-Video Out and In, and would like to use the VCR S-Video Input portion of their machine. Remember you have to go into the DVD portion of the Menu to switch between Composite and S-Video. I probably spent 4-5 hours off and on, trying everything from switching S-Video cables, using different outlets, switching between L-1 and F-1, using a TV instead of my computer to view the output, redoing the wiring, etc etc. Anyway now that that's over I just hope to save someone the trouble of figuring out that you need to use the DVD side to control the VHS side. The manual also does the absolute bare minimum when it comes to telling the owner that you have to manually select your Video input, while the same machine will happily output both S-Video and Composite at the same time. This information is not repeated on the VCR side of the manual -_-

So this combi will actually output from the VCR in s-video ?
I ask since on my Funai s-video output is reserved for dvd only.

Thanks for that.
It was always my - maybe mis-understood - understanding that s-video output, at VHS level, was reserved for a s-vhs vcr.
I would hardly expect any combi to be s-vhs compatable. So it seems I have been proved wrong.
