    I want to run an SVideo connection from my Marantz 5200 to my Sanyo PLV30. I've looked on the Richer Sounds site and seen only mention of SVHS. Is this the same thing?

    SVHS if a higher resolution version of VHS, but the name is often mistakenly used instead of s-video. If RS are talking about SVHS as a form of video connection they really meant s-video

    Yeah.... what he said.

    S-Video stands for Separate Video - meaning that the brightness (luma) and colour (chroma) signals are sent down separate cables.

    S-VHS (= Super VHS) is a means of recording an S-Video signal onto a tape - the chroma and luma signals are recorded separately on the tape.

    The two terms are often erroneously interchanged.
