I seriously thought it was the same thing as composite video. Now I'm learning about SCART cables, that my SNES has bad picture quality, my Dreamcast is a pain in the butt to connect, and more. This is going to be a long process to get most of my consoles connected to my HDTV. I think I'm going to start with getting the majority of the cables, getting everything I need for my component cable consoles, and then slowly switching out my other consoles so they can play on the darn things. Also looking for switcher boxes that work well. Already have several in mind but who knows how long that will take.
Still, I'm excited to try this out... I should have the D-Terminal to component adapter in the next couple days meaning I can at least test out those consoles and see how they look.
You know what? I tried a "better" input for the N64, the S-video, and I thought it actually looked worse, and more pixelated than the composite. I think if you just get the settings right, you can use any cords. I have an 8-input composite switcher that I bought from Grainger, and I love how I can have all my systems at the ready, hooked up to the Framemeister.
