    Is there an easy (read cheap) way to convert from SCART output to S=video
    input?

    TIA.

    Thanks -

    When I finally found my Maplin catalogue, there was an adapter from SCART to
    S-VHS with 2 extra phono leads for L+R audio, presumably the PC S-VHS input
    card will extract the audio from the composite?

    your mileage might vary but with my nvidia GFX card the svid output is
    just that - I had to run the audio from the sound card as well and
    then chucked everything into a little box with a scart plug on one
    side and svid & 2xPhone on the other (just looks like a big scart plug
    in the back of my telly)

    It won't. S-video is always videoonly with separate audio.

    The card's documentation claims it can feed output via S-video to a TV set
    as well as act as a capture card, but there are no RCA jacks for audio and
    one illustration shows a S-video to single RCA jack for composite video
    connection - so I wonder if the manufacturer has used a S-video connector
    more because its a good fit for the slot plate than strict adherence to the
    S-video standard.

    Audio comes from your PC sounccard (or to in the case of a capture card).
    They use an S-video jack so S-video can be used, if desired. S-video is
    simply the Lumiance and Chromiance spearated. The card could simply gate
    the Chroma onto the Luma line, making it composite.
