    Do most S-VHS players have S-video pass-through on the scarts?
    I've only got one S-video Scart and already use that for S-video output of my DVD player (which no RGB output on it, and I don't want to go to composite). So could I connect the DVD player to one of the VCRs scarts then connect the other VCR scart to the telly and still be able to watch DVDs in S-video without taking the VCR out of standby?

    The VCR i'm specifically looking at is the Panasonic NVHS820. It's got 2 scarts but no details about whether they've got pass-through.

    Cheers,
    John

    PS If anyone would care to recommend a different model to the Panny I've mentioned above, that'd be great too. My maximum budget is around £250. I'm not too bothered about editing features, I'm mostly concerned about picture and sound quality.

    My new JVC HRS 8850 may have what you require.

    Both SCARTS can be configured via the menu to whatever you want. You can have S-Video IN on AV2 and S-Video OUT AV1.
    i.e a loopthrough.

    I think this is the same for the cheaper JVC SVHS models.

    BTW, the pic quality is excellent. too.
