Recently upgraded to all the stuff in the Subject line of this post. My question, is it possible for me to successfully acquire media from older decks such as 3/4 or SVHS that aren't equip with composite or SDI outs? With my older Media 100 break out boxes i had an option for Component in or S-Video in. But with the new Xena hardware mentioned above i don't seem to have those options.

If your Breakout box is connected correctly (the multipin plugs are somewhat flimsy), you have the option to acquire in Component. There are component ins and outs on the BOB, which are double-used as Composite ins and outs. So you either have a Composite+S-Video out, or you have a Component out.
