    I have some standard VHS tapes I want to transfer to iMovie. I was wondering if using S-Video out from the VCR to converter box (Canopus) would make any different to the quality, considering that the tapes were not recorded in svhs (s-video mode).

    The weak link in the chain will be the VHS tape itself. But keep the rest of the chain as high-end as you can just to be sure the weak link remains the tape. Degradation is additive.
