I have a Dazzle and at first i was using Composite and the quality is not so good. Heres a Video showing Composite.

 

And when i got S-Video a couple of Weeks ago the Quality has improved by a lot. Heres a Video showing S-Video.

 

And as i hope you could see the S-Video is much clearer and better quality, you can really see it in the words, in the Composite the words are really blurry and in the S-Video its much clearer. And if you are going to buy a Dazzle i would highly suggest that you get a S-video cable it helps a lot.

The S-Video recording definitely looks a lot better Benjamin.

Same settings exept input? RAW video?I use composite myself, and it looks really good.

Your composite clip looked very interlaced.

Hm, that makes me want to try myself, but the Xbox only have composite (unless you're insane and buy HD cables that cost a shitload). But 720x576 -> 1280x720 looks pretty good. When Fable eventually is completed, I'll upload it all.

Do you use the pinnacle thing? Or a 3rd party program like DScaler? (I use that)
