As a fellow Steve, let me try to help you, despite not really knowing your reference to the sv100/1000 cables.

If I were looking for an S-Video cable, and I have bought many, I'd head over to monoprice.com and browse their selection. They will show you specifications, have helpful reviews which contain examples that will help you tell if you're on the right track, and their prices are rock bottom.

Can you clarify your question a bit if you need more help?

Also, this probably isn't the right forum, but hey, I don't care.

S video cables are from the late 80s, we have moved on. The resolution capacity of the format is far less than anyone would want to use in a dedicated theater.

S-video?? Are we talking an 8-track sound system as well??

Monster S-Video...? Monster scored on you!!

Giving you crap. Ditch any component that has an S-video port. s-video is still 480i. HDMI is all you want. If you have a component with S-video... time to ditch it.

And if you do *really* need an S-video cable, be sure to post your location. I'll bet any number of AVS'ers nearby will gladly give you one out of their pile... I can probably give you a very nice one or 3. If I haven't thrown them away.

If you don't throw them ALL away they will reproduce. It only takes one since they reproduce like Tribbles.

Same with the yellow-red-white cables.

I agree that S-video is quite passe' and I am not running anything but, HD capable cabling. However, since Stevo is a newbie lets have him stop short of throwing out components with an S-video port, afterall even the Sony AE7000 has one!

Svideo still gets a workout in my theater from my CLD-99 Laserdisc player to my Panny 1080p projector.

I'd love to know the source component he needs the Svideo cable for.

You might try composite from the LD player instead. IIRC the video is stored as 'composite' (yeah, not the right word, but you know what I mean) and so you're just using the Y/C separator in the LD player vs. something else downstream. Back in the day the one in the LD player was probably the highest quality. Now, I have a feeling the video processor may produce better results...

I haven't hooked mine up in a long while, really should get it out to watch the One True Star Wars video release.

PS - Note the OP hasn't returned...
