Well, i watched SVHS of StarWars Empire Strikes Back.I'm not sure if its close enough to low res laser disc to s-video. I'm sure its the tape that has the problems but any tape all have this problem...the color goes into black and white then to color every so often. I didn't have this with my LCD projector that is 5 years old. I guess the Faroudja couldn't make up it's mind.
Very watchable, even quite good. I am watching C-Band Satellite via S-Video and it really looks great on the channels that offer a good signal. If you feed it quality S-Video, it really does look great.
Just watched an old classic from my old VHS machine through COMPOSITE! Apart from being a bit soft, the image and colour quality was great. I've decided to get rid of my 60" RPTV as it won't be used anymore. Even my wife, who is not impressed by technology was very impressed and enjoyed the show immensely. The Faroudja processor really is that impressive. I'm not bothering with component wiring, I don't see much variation. S-video for DVD and satellite and composite for the taped stuff. And you don't need a progressive DVD player either, let the X1 handle things. It will and it does!
