S-Video is an analog input. The difference between it and composite is
S-video separates out the luminance and chrominance. It is still analog
however and will NOT give yo HDTV output. Also the connectors tend to
be of poor quality so you get bleed over (at least in the dozen or so I
tested). AS others have posted get a TV with HDMI or DVI and use the
HDMI output on the 6600 (I use a HDMI to DVI cable to my JVC HDilla,
other then the under scan I need it works fine.)
