RGB->S-video converter: Which one?

I'm looking for recommendations for an RGB SCART-> S-video converter, to take the output of my TiVo into an AE100 (actually via a ProV, but AE100 is more on topic :)

There are two that I am aware of - Keene's and rgbtosvideo.com's

Weren't there some issues with image shift on one of them?

Also, do either pass the RGB widescreen signal through S-video? The AE100 manual says it supports 'S2' which can carry widescreen information and that would be really useful for DTT.

The new JS tech one might pass widescreen flagging and might have better picture quality than the previous one.

I have one from lektropacks, it was £50 with no problems.

Didn't the Keene one have some sort of screw to adjust something?

I saw it on here. Try searching.

I paid £50 for the Keene RGB - S converter to run Sky and My Panny 360 DVD into a Tosh MT3. Very pleased with the results!
Even Sky Movies are watchable at 90" wide! There is an internal adjustment (preset) just to settle everything down - the box also alledgedly defeats the Sky Movies anti-piracy video recording signal - althouhg I've never tried to verify this!!
