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.

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.
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.

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.
Thing you need s-video to composite adapter and rf modulator from radio shack

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

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.
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.
