I've gotten mixed messages when it comes to S-video on LD but have had good experiences with it on my DVL-909. Is there any problems with the S-video on the S2?



Also if it helps I do all my gaming and SD movie watching on a JVC D series and a switcher box I want to hook up to it.

S2 has a comparable s-video output as far as comb filter artifacts and 2D comb filter limitations go. S2 has much cleaner video from video noise.

Tell me about it! I think the moral of the story is compare composite and S-video with your player in your ecosystem and make your own choice.

LD-S1 → High-performance 3D comb filter → Monitor

LD-S2 → Composite or S cable → Monitor

If possible, sandwich a high performance s-vhs VCR between

Doing so may result in higher image quality

I executed and made S1 image quality higher than S2

the LD-S2 came out WAY EARLY in the era of internal comb filters and S-Video outputs. In this day and age I can't imagine in any setup where the S-Video out from an LD-S2 would look better.
