ChannelPlus AV versus S-video modulator - difference ??

Postby neils » Tue Jan 23, 2007 6:19 pm

I noticed that in the setup diagrams within DVDLobby section, they show a rack mount version of a modulator that accepts S-Video inputs and outputs stereo audio. Compared to the AV version that only accepts composite video and audio is mono. The rack mount S-video stereo audio version sells for almost double, around $350 on eBay, versus $100-$150 for the A/V version...

Is the extra money worth it?? Will you see an improved video quality since it will still go across an RG59 cable throughtout the house ???

neils, I wouldn't use that picture as suggested hardware.

Svideo is not excellent video quality. Wire for high definition. At least component video (three RG6 cables per TV).

Single RG59 is even worse than Svideo. Not recommended.
