One min on google, and you have http://www.trianglecables.com/svhsf-rcam.html
is there such a thing as an RCA [yellow plug] to s-video adapter?
i want to use my laptop [with s-video] to transfer stuff from camcorder/ps2 etc....
[need quickish reply before i go out and buy a tv-in card for my pc instead, lol]
yes there is just picked one up, at Radio Shack up here in Canada
wait you said transfer FROM camcorder? are you sure the svid on the laptop is input? all ive ever seen is output.
correct. same. i have dealt with several laptop brands and have only seen output video, rarely input on laptops. only real exceptions are some of the sony laptops and some Apples.
Yup - Laptop S-video is an OUTPUT ie from laptop to TV. Very much doubt it is an input.
Best way to do it is to look for a Dazzle USB adapter, whereby it takes rca/s-video as an input and feeds it into usb.
You're gonna need a usb adapter of sorts. A cheap USB TV tuner should do the trick. Get video in and a TV tuner at the same time.
yup - cost me £12 to find out it's only an output :'( bu99er!!!
ah well, i got a s-video [female] to composite [male] adapter and an s-video/2phono to s-video/3.5mm stereo jack for sale....lol
