I'd be willing to bet that it would turn out to be one of those where
the S-Video connector doesn't switch. I actually ordered an expensive
cable from Conrad very similar to this one thinking it would work, but
it turned out to also have a composite video connector, and that was the
one that switched...
I seem to remember that it was actually electrically impossible to make
a SCART adapter with S-Video input because the S-Video and the RGB
signals actually share some pins.
But who knows, maybe these guys figured it out... :-)
