    I know I'm very much in the minority on this, but I actually have HDretrovision cables for my Genesis and also have RGB SCART cables as well. Believe it or not, the HDretrovision cables look better through the OSSC than the RGB does. The RGB signal is a tad darker and doesn't seem to have as good a contrast to it. The cable I have seems to be amazing quality too so I was surprised by the results. However, RGB SCART on the saturn looks much clearer and more vibrant than my previous s-video out did and that was already pretty good to begin with.

    I have found that with the s-video on a model 1 genesis, that you can help with the jailbars quite a bit by making sure of a few things:

    - make sure you route the luma and chroma wires far away from the 3515 VDP section of the Genesis.
    - use the same ground that the actual 1145 encoder is using.
    - take the wiring route a step further and route the luma and chroma outside the RF shielding. I usually advise the opposite to help with outside RF interference from causing problems. But in this case, it helps to shield the noisy vdp section even further from causing issues.
    - make sure you either build a PCB with adjustable trimmers or purchase premade ones that do. I found that the largest factor in helping to remove those jail bars in the s-video signal is to adjust the Luma to a point where they are least noticeable.

    Doing those steps above I was quite pleased with how the s-video looks on both of my model 1 units.

    Normally vertical noise on the video signal.

    Here is an example from Joe:
