Should I use yellow video cable when using S-video?

    When I connect my mini-DV camcorder to our console DVD
    recorder, I've been connecting the red and white RCA
    audio cables, but not the yellow video cable. I then
    connect an S-video cable between the two. Should I also
    connect the yellow RCA video cable? I don't believe I'd
    gain anything, and I'm concerned I wouldn't the the
    quality of the S-video connection.

    No, the yellow connector is not s-video.

  3. The point is that the S-video IS the video, the compoiste video
    carried by the yellow cable is not necessary. I think that would be a
    clearer answer.
