    If feeding an S-video signal into a S-VHS recorder, can you record that signal in a VHS form? Or will it give you a black & white signal if you try that?

    (Basically, will the recorder downgrade the S-video to Composite, or do you have to record S-video as S-video)

    I'm not sure I understand your question. Are you saying you will be using a normal VHS tape and not a S-VHS tape?

    If so then the quality of the recording will be to VHS standard. It will still be in colour.

    Yes, I mean recording on normal VHS tape.

    Specifically, what I want to know is can I make making a VHS recording (composite signal) from an S-video source (S-video signal).

    ie Will the recorder be able to convert the S-video signal (separate chroma and luminance signals) to a composite signal (combined chroma and luminance) when writing it to the tape.

    Yes, that works fine, I do it all the time, when I run out of S-VHS tapes!

    Just checking, but you do mean you do this from an S-video source (ie S-video Out from a digibox or DVD player), and not from a composite source (ie from analogue terrestrial, composite video-out from a digibox or from a VHS-only VCR)?

    If so I'll be happy :)
