As a collector of old (1930s through 1950s) films I have occasion to transfer VHS pre-recorded and other collector's tapes to DVD with my EH55. I have an older but well-functioning Panny VCR that I've used for this purpose. The Panny VCR's outputs are composite only so transfers of color tapes tend to be bland, lacking in much color punch, even with good pre-recorded tapes made from 3-strip Technicolor masters. I've looked on Panny's website and it appears that at least one of the currentDVD/VCR recorder combinations have S-video outputs. I'm sure that if I had a VCR (preferably Panny) with S-video outputs, my image quality would improve enormously with color films. I could purchase one of these new DVD/VCR recorders, but they are pretty pricey for my limited application (I use my BluRay player to output my DVDs, both new and transfered) to my Panny plasma display and I'm quite surprised and gratified at the remarkable quality of upscaling (upconverting?) of my transfers of old films generally. My question: have any of the last-manufactured (non-DVD) Panny VCRs featured S-video outputs or is this a more recent configuration? I'd like to identify such VCRs, if any, for some Craig's List and EBay searches.
