I am trying to find a place that sells about a 20 foot S-Video cable. Want to hook PC to TV. Anyone know of anywhere?

Ok, I just bought a new tv... sony KV-32HV600 .
my options for connecting a computer to this is:

  • s-video -> composite
  • s-video -> s-video
  • vga-> vga-component converter -> components
  • DVI-DVI

i believe that is the order of PQ.
i've tried the first 2, and s-video to s-video is 'good' .
i'm jumping straight to DVI-DVI cause i hear that's the best quality.

the thing is, now i need a new videocard with a DVI out!

Is there a different cable for S-Video to Composite than there is for S-Video to S-Video?

yes, the s-video to composite has s-video on one end, and two (red/black or yellow/white, or red/white).
s-video to s-video is what it is..

going from the first to the second, i saw a good 20% increase in picture quality...
