    S-Video is a better quality for video. I'm not too sure where you see TV Out, prehaps on the VCR. It probably means its Video out to the TV.

    little more info please put your question into context.

    An svideo cable is a cable for carrying a video signal - it is usually transmitted as two signals over 4 pins one pair for chrominance the other for luminance.

    This provides a better signal transmission than composite where both signals are combined, it is less prone to interference.

    It is often seen on graphics cards as a TV out so you can view the output on a TV, but dont as the resolution of a tv is rubbish. Also seen on video capture cards and some tv tuner cards.

    In these instances and on many consumer devices, tvs, vcrs, etc, svideo is implemented on a 4 pin mini-din plug, it is also available using a scart lead.
