S-Video to VGA converter

Has anyone had any success with using an S-Video to VGA converter to
get the S-Video from Beagleboard Rev C4 to display on a VGA monitor?
I've got a converter like this:

and a male/male S-Video cable to connect board to converter to
monitor. With the below bootargs, I'm still not getting any display
on the monitor. I'm thinking it might be the type of cord I'm using,
so just wondering if anyone has had this setup before and gotten it to
work? thanks.

root@beagleboard:~# cat /proc/cmdline
console=ttyS2,115200n8 console=tty0 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rw rootwait
rootdelay=2 mem=80M video=omapfb:vram:2M,vram:4M omapfb.mode=tv:ntsc

if this is your cable then it converts *from* VGA *to* S-Video....

Based on my ignorance, I don’t see how it can possibly work.

Hi…
It will convert S video to VGA not the other way.
