    I have a Voodoo3 3000 video card and all it has is an S-Video
    out jack on the back. The tv I have only has an F connector, or
    your basic cable tv cable. Is there ANY type of adapter I can use
    to hook these two up? I do have 2 VCR's but neither of them have
    an S-Video jack either.

    Any Help? Thanks.

  2. There is an S-video to composite adapter, in fact you should have gotten one with your AIW. If your VCR has composite-in and coax-out, that would do it. I have used such a conversion and it works.

    It is physically possible to convert the composite connector to a coax type, whether it should theoretically work I don't know, I was unable to get any signal at all thru such a conversion.

  3. s-video jacks are for video only,they contain sync pulses,croma,& luminance signals and are less than 4.5 Mhz. f connectors are r.f. only for receiving broadcast signals. so if your vcr/tv does not have s-video connectors then you must use f connectors. Oh by the way does your card have a rca/video connectors, most vcr's/tv's have this connector and the quality is better than going thru "f" connections.

    The only jack I have is the S-Video out. I was trying install a Xpert98
    but the chipset on my MB saw it as an All In Wonder. I was pressed for
    time and $$ so I had to get the Voodoo3. If I knew then what I know
    now I would have bought something with more than just one out jack.

    Thanks.

    I will have to see if if one of my VCR's has a composite jack. That would
    make this so much easier. The adapter mentioned: It would work with
    this: S-Video out - adapter - composite out - composite in on VCR.
    Is that how this would work? If so that may me the ticket.

    Thanks.

    That IS the TICKET SHS!!!
    I just got done checking this info out and it looks like it should work.
    At least something will work (I have been fighting with an audio/video
    sync problem on an AVI file for about a week - No luck). But at least
    I can watch my sync'ed videos on the TV now.

    Thank You, Thank You

  8. Your VCR will convert the signal to COAX, you do NOT need the RF-Modulator, connect as you suggested.

    I have not seen the back of my VCR in a while but I am pretty sure I
    need the Modulator for the composite jack. I bought the VCR back in '96.
    Can't remember if it has a composite jack or not. IF it does then thanks
    for the info. That would save me about $30.

  10. Your VCR probably has RCA jacks on it. Most do. A helluva lot more VCRs have RCA than composite, that's for sure (especially the cheap ones).

    Search Yahoo for "s-video to RCA" and you should be able to find an adapter for about $10.
