CORRECTtrop of the ball !APPROVED
CORRECTS-video male (output signal) TO rca-video (input jack) is correct.
But, rca-video (as the output signal) to s-video input isnt working.
Change the capacitor to 330pF (from tv-output-signal to pci-capture-card).
Or 430pF (from handycam without firewire to pci-capture-card ).
Warning: component value may vary.
CORRECTI built it placing the capacitor before the RCA end and using one of 1nF (600-800 pF were also good) to get a more stable chrominance, but I probably had to use this greater value because the S-video input was from a notebook (Intel 82852 video card)APPROVED
CORRECTIt is works on SECAM tv and I used 511 pF capicator.APPROVED
CORRECTWorks fine but worth pointing out on pin diagram that the pin numbering is as viewed from the PIN side, not from the wiring side!APPROVED
2009-04-10 18:16:53rev. 3CORRECTCapacitor is not nessesaryAPPROVED
2009-07-25 23:53:22rev. 3CORRECTWorks like a charm. Used a 560pF capacitor instead of the recommended 470pF and video quality was still fine. APPROVED
2009-10-24 18:02:19rev. 5CORRECTAPPROVED
2009-11-06 00:49:36rev. 5INCORRECTCap not nessasary did work but with unstable picture and lines. Cap seems to be the correct wayAPPROVED
2009-11-30 22:04:59rev. 5CORRECTExcellent used without cap works great very helpfulAPPROVED
2010-01-31 06:25:51rev. 5CORRECTThis is very good no use of caps and works just take 4 and put as ground and 3 as signal and good to go.APPROVED
2010-11-18 16:40:56rev. 7CORRECT100% CorrectAPPROVED
2011-03-20 13:03:21rev. 7ERROR FIXEDPins 3 and 4 should be shorted to RCA "Signal" Pin 1 - GroundAPPROVED

2012-06-15 21:42:16rev. 7CORRECTAPPROVED
2012-09-01 10:57:23rev. 7CORRECTNo errors at all. The circuit worked very well. Looked just as clean as using a normal S-Video cable.APPROVED
2012-10-05 08:11:55rev. 7CORRECTthis helped me alotAPPROVED
2012-12-13 23:22:37rev. 7CORRECTNone...APPROVED
2017-01-07 22:07:52rev. 8CORRECTNo errors. Everything works well without the capacitor. Though I was initially having some issues with the color signals on a cheap mini DIN-4 connector, these issues were eliminated simply by using a higher-quality connector.APPROVED

2009-10-19 22:19:41rev. 4Jeremyno cap needed, connect pin 4 to ground, pin 3 to rca center pin, extra 2 wires (ground svideo arent used)
