IIRC (I did the wiring some time ago) in S-Video the Y-component comes
down what normally carries Composite on a SCART (pin 19, g17, goes into
pin 20) and the C-component comes down pin 15 (g13) which is normally
RED for RGB connections. Lack of pins? Not quite sure why they couldn't
make use of some of the pins which were presumably meant for more
esoteric uses unheard of on consumer equipment... two data lines???
My (oldish) WS Sony set won't switch the socket function - AV1 will
accept RGB or composite but not S-video (so all the RGB devices go there
through a switch box) and my SVHS video goes into AV2 which will accept
S-video but *not* RGB. Rather naughtily I've taken a spare (composite)
output from the switch box back into the video recorder (only naughty
because the composite from DTT and DVD is therefore double-terminated
and the picture suffers a little).
