a connection usually 5 pin s-video connection allows you toconect video to a TV/DVD player

However audio connect from sound card to red /yellow plugs.

It's what it infers - the means to output the card's signal to a television set using appropriate leads.

It allows you to hook up your PC with your tv monitor via a special lead from the "TV out" socket to usually a mini din socket on the front of your tv set called An S video input, see your tv manual if yours has one (I have a sony trinitron)

jonnytub-the shorter the better, my cable is 3 metres and I still get a great picture off my tv set.

Read your original posting again, monitor your reaction and hopefully be enlightened.

The recent Aldi Tevion Scart Lead Set included a 10 metre S-Video and 10-metre RCA cables and an S-Video adapter. Price, £5.99 and, so it's claimed, all gold plated...:-)

Got one at the time as some ripoff stores charge more than that just for a basic Scart cable - price at CPC in Preston for Scart cables, for instance, is £1.99 plus VAT.
