Maybe I've misunderstood your intentions, but just an important notice about this.

As far as I know, you can't convert an S-video signal (Y/C) to RGB, simply because an S-video cable doesn't carry the RGB signals separately. Trying to fix this with a weird electronic circuit would just degrade the signal. The best bet would be to simple get an s-video (or composite) to SCART connector. It wouldn't give you any improvement in video quality but it would allow you to connect the cables to a SCART input. Once the signal goes through a composite cable, the RGB signals have already been combined and the damage to the signal has already been done.

> Yeah, but I was not thinking about using it for SNES. I would modifiy the connector to accept standard composite or s-video input. I really need to find an external NTSC to RGB (SCART) box to use my PC Engine, GameCube, etc.
