X1 with S video output?

X1 with S video output?

I have a Panasonic VHS DVD unit that I use to record TV broadcasts onto DVDs. The best video input that it has is S video. It also has composite video but recording with that produces poor results. It also has cable/rf in but recording with that on channel 3 produces poor results.


I traded by old Comcast box for an X1 box as I was tired of the Comcast box scheduling being erased by momentary power failures.


My X1 box has HDMI out that goes to the TV. It has rf/cable out that can go to the Panasonic box but that is not really usable for recording. It has composite out. The Xfinity agent I spoke with says that there are no X1 boxes with S video out. So I currently have no way to produce decent recordings.


Any ideas - other than getting an HDMI splitter and HDMI to S video adapter?
