Nice! Great to see someone getting into the N64 - did you used to play it when it came out or are you younger and getting one for the first time?

Just to say that s-video via HDMI likely will look pretty rough on a larger flatscreen. If you're getting into it for the longer term, the money would be *much* better spent on an UltraHDMI mod. This piece of kit makes the console look great on HDTVs - like night and day. It has the best hardware CRT emulation out there and you can choose between a variety of image styles to your taste.

It'll be a little pricier but if you're going to do a lot of N64 gaming and don't want a CRT around it'll be well worth it. The other option is just to buy a cheap CRT of course, but not everyone wants one in their living space.

Edit: if you're wanting to use a range of other 240p consoles of a flatscreen, there are other options like the OSSC or XRGB mini that will suit a wide range of those consoles - but if you're just going for the N64 the UltraHDMI beats them all :)
