I picked up a JVC VM-R190SU monitor last night that has these connectors on it for S-video in and out:





It's called a JVC 358 connector, or EIAJ 7-pin connector, used for old video cameras and JVC's own S-VHS decks. I'd like to get adapters (or cables) so that I can plug in a standard s-video mini-DIN. Anyone know where I can source something like that? I realize I may have to roll my own.

They look like "Hirose" connectors.

Any info in regard to an adapter/converter as requested by the OP?

I haven't googled any for him....have you?

Whether you believe me or not.... yes I did. I could not find any Y/C 358/422 cable converter/adapter to standard S-Video DIN. I also searched around for "Hirose" to no avail. Therefore.... refer to post #3.
Any enlightenment would be appreciated by everyone

Based on what can be seen on the links provided, it's appears the "connectors" can obtained, but no "converter/adapter" (from 7 pin to standard 4 pin DIN). So.... I guess the OP will have to make a conversion cable/connector.

Thanks to all for the responses. I've decided to roll my own cable for the input with an s-video cable I have laying around and this:

And for output there's this:

I wouldn't mess with all that. Instead, I would just open the monitor and solder in a normal s-video connector. Solder points will probably be large and impossible to mess up.
