Hi guys, I just wanna know if the Hauppauge Pvr-150 tv tuner has a genuine s-video input or not. I remember reading somewhere that it`s just a composite input with basically an s-video adapter. Maybe I have no idea what I`m talking about huhh, but I`d like to clear up the fog in my head.

Genuine. SVideo works a different way to composite so you could not just change the plug. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S-video

So then products like these are not supposed to work?

I would say it is a proper s-video as I used to have a Sky decoder connected via the composite video and then changed to s-video and it definitely looks a lot better.

Those are not just plugs they are converters. However fair point it could do the same thing I guess. Would be a very strange thing to do though.

Ok, good to hear, that`s what I was trying to find out.

Yeah I agree, that`s why I was quite surprised when I read that on a forum somewhere. Hopefully the person just didn`t have the right info.
