Hi,

I recommend the xRGB mini Framemeister. Unlike most TVs and many scalers, it can properly distinguish between 240p and 480i. It looks fantastic with s-video. It outputs HDMI in 480p, 720p, and 1080p, as well as some interlaced formats also. It accepts Component(with adapter), composite, HDMI, s-video, and RGB scart(with adapter).

With today's exchange rate, it costs about $330 dollars, but its worth it.

I agree - the XRGB-mini will look better, but bear in mind that it has lag of around 16ms (1 frame). If you find out how fast your TV is in ms and add it to that, you'll have the total lag. Very fast HDTVs are around 16ms as well (i.e. the Sony w6/7).

If you're sensitive to lag, you definitely don't want to go above 32ms of total lag, so your TV will need to be very fast indeed if you want to pair it with an XRGB. Websites like displaylag.com have databases where you should be able to find your TV's lag value.
True, however you are missing one step in that equation:

Framemeister Lag + TV Lag - TV Lag caused by scaling to TV's native resolution.

I've yet to test it, but if the Framemeister's lag is less than the lag in your TV's internal scaling, it should cause an overall lag reduction.
