It is my understanding the highest resolution you can get on S-Video is 720 x 480. As for a fuzzy image, it is possible your refresh rate (Hz) is not good. Use the recommended settings after doing a Detect Displays from Apple menu -> System Preferences -> Displays. You may also want to try a different S-Video Cable.iMac G5-1.8 (1st Gen), Powerbook G4 17" 3rd Gen 1.5 Ghz, iMac G4 w/OS 9, Mac OS X (10.4.5), EyeTV 200, Olympus C-700, Epson P-R220, iSight, Airport Extreme, 5th Gen iPod

I have tried two different S-video cables including one that I know works with the same result. My best theory is that the S-video jack on the powerbook is bad.PBook 1.3GHz, Mac OS X (10.3.9), 1.25 Gig RAM
