Backing up sky recordings via s video.

I'm having an issue recording from sky, I'm using a scart to svideo converter that I am connecting to my pc using a dazzle dvd recorder, but the picture through svideo is coming through too bright, like the whites are overblown, whereas if I connect through composite I don't have this problem, but the composite picture quality is pretty poor overall.

I thought it may be the scart cable so I bought a replacement one. But I am still having this issue.

I'm thinking of trying another s-video cable but I'm tempted to just give up on this method and try recording via hdmi.

Does anyone know what could be causing this?

Thanks

Yes. S Video is picture quality is poor overall and the SCART output is overdriving (signal too big) for the receiving device.
Good luck with HDMI.
