    I am currently using an old, bust still very useful eMac DVI out to SVideo adapter. I have the Mac connected to a VCR with SVideo that then feeds 4 TVs around the room and it works and looks great. It is perfect for showing video clips, etc. during my lesson.

    I am in the process of buying a new 21" iMac and am trying to find a similar adapter.

    At first glance, I am NOT seeing a S-Video out option. I realize it is an older standard, but the MacBook Air has one.

    Is there an adapter? If not, is there another solution somebody has worked out using multiple adapters?

    Thanks!!

    Most likely, there's converters for all the display connections. iMac uses minidisplay port.

    I have an old elgato Firewire400 to/from s-video adapter box, also from my eMac days. (my device is the European EyeTV 200 - FireWire D.V.R) It's in a cupboard in Italy! you should be able to find one cheap nearer to you and drive it from Firewire??

    their website filled with many shiny modern things is here http://www.elgato.com/elgato/na/mainmenu/products.en.html
    but I think you might find the product you need in their wikipedia history?
