    Hi guys,
    Anyone out there know how to or if it's possible
    to change the menus on the JVC HM HD S1 to allow
    s-video in and out on the same scart socket, as I have two
    svhs machines and would like to be able to transfer in
    s-vid quality ?
    All help apreciated

    I don't know this box but what I do know is that s-video in/out on the same Scart is a major pain in the bum!!! The reason is that one of the pins (can't remember if it is the colour or luminance one) is common to both in and out and this can cause major hassles (think about it). S-video wan't implemented very well on Scart (can't blame anybody, it wasn't designed for it) and this SEEMS to be the reason most boxes (VCRs etc.) try and avoid giving users the option. In theory my JVC s-vhs video can handle s-video in and out on the same Scart, in reality it is almost impossible to use unless you reconfigure at least one piece of equipment in the chain depending on what you are doing.

    thanks mart
    overlooked that one i see how it could cause A problem
    i asume that for the same reason on afore mentioned
    box that when u select 'decoder' to scart 2 (normally only an
    incoming scart) that u lose svid selections, although why that would affect scart 1 is a little strange !
    heres what the ever usefull instruction book says!
    "If 'L1 OUTPUT' is set to 'S-VIDEO' it is impossible to set 'L1 INPUT'
    to 'S-VIDEO'
    and
    If 'L2 SELECT' is set to 'DECODER' it is impossible to set "L1 INPUT' to 'S-VIDEO' "
    go figure !
    anyway thanks for ur help


    :eek:

    I THINK it is something to do with the fact that if you have a true, old style, sat decoder attached then the composite scrambled input would be coming from Scart one to be decoded and then returned to the VCR and out again. It's something along those lines.

    Gotcha
    I also found out its a vhf+uhf tuner which leads me to think of sync inverter decoders
