[Bill Stephan] "Those are strictly a composite-only format."

Not exactly true, sir!

Most 3/4" decks had what was called a "dub" cable. Here's an example of one:

This output separated the "Y/C" signals... creating essentially a component signal. NOT exactly
what we now know as a"component" recording, but close.

So... if you want the best possible signal from a 3/4 " deck, use the dub cable output through a TBC (Time Base Correctors for you young uns) . Some TBC's actually had "dub" input connectors.

Good luck!
