Hi all,

 

Just fixed my Laserdisc player yesterday (home isolation has to be good for something!) and have hooked it up to my RX-V3085 via composite. The LD player has S-video out but unfortunately the AVR does not accept that (can't believe it doesn't have one input!). Anybody know of any converter to HDMI or component that works reliably. I am looking for a noticeable improvement in the PQ over the composite connection. Budget is < $100. I can google a bunch of options but really want a solid recommendation as I have purchased stuff in the past that never worked properly (eg. HDMI splitters with my old avr).

 

Thanks!

If I recall correctly from long ago,the red/white/yellow rcas outs were same quality output as the S video output?not sure how to confirm though it has been a while !

Hmmm...Just did some googling and you may be right. The modern comb filters should outperform my trusty LD players. At the time the reverse was true!

You want an s-video to component converter Krumlov ; composite even with the best comb filters cant compete with s-video due to the complete separation of luminance/chrominance iirc . s video is almost as good as component ..

You would need something like this if you dont want conversion in the box but letting the yammie do it instead ;

These are very thin on the ground as everyone uses digital these days ; I would try instead though something like the cablechicks hdmi solution and again let the yammie upscale as needed to 1080p etc ; it has a top notch deinterlacer/ scaler..
