Well, I'm no EE, so I don't know about that.  I do know that the 3 or 4 
of these things that I've played with were unsatisfactory.  (They all 
came as thrown-ins with various things like capture cards or other 
devices.)   The result on the TV of composite converted from svideo was 
*way* below svideo quality (noisy, minor color shift).  I don't mean the 
usual "composite is not quite as good as svideo" issues: those are 
subtle.  This wasn't.
