It would also mean the conversion would go from analog->digital->analog->digital.
A straight transcoder should be able to stay within analogue domain.
I have Sony YR-1000 s-video transcoder and it’s no good with progressive signal. Every EVEN horizontal line has different hue because the Sony Y/C jungle IC (CXA1213S) mistakenly inverts the R-Y color components phase.
I got okay results with the C64 and the YR-3000, never noticed anything like that but to be fair the C64s S-Video isn’t the greatest to start with even when using a lumafix.
I envision a small box with S-Video (in) and SCART (out) connectors
We may go for component out just because it’s easier to get the connectors. Anyway, no promises 🙂
