    i have a sony trv140 digital8 camcorder that records in ntsc,
    i have looked for a cheap alternative to view it on a europe tv in color (i have a stable black and white image)

    it has composite component and s-video out

    can i change one of them to rgb and then the rgb to view on the pal tv

    is there a diagram on wiring something like this together

    Unfortunately Composite and S-Video can't be converted to RGB without additional electronic equipment. Sorry.

    That adapter just mixes the two components of S-video (luminance and chrominance) together, into a composite video signal. It is no different from using the regular A/V cable. The purpose of the adapter is to be able use devices which have only S-video but no composite outputs, on TV's that do not support S-video.

    If you get a black-and-white picture through the regular A/V cable, the problem is that the TV is not NTSC compatible at all (or only compatible with 'fake' NTSC). The adapter would not help.

    Many newer TV's sold in Europe are compatible with 'real' NTSC, so the easiest solution may be to see if it works on a friend's or relatives' set.
