My old computer had a Radeon X850 inside of it. The GPU can also be used as a capture card. I lost my 9 pin S-Video cable and was wondering where you can buy one? I heard you can only get them online, but im not sure.

Thanks Babeman but the ones at Best Buy are 4-pin S-Video cables, I need a 9-pin

There is no such thing as a 9-pin S-Video cable. They all have four pins.

Old analog video cables used DE-9 D-sub connectors. If you need something round, with nine pins... well then, you're looking for a proprietary cable.

Any round cable with more than four conductors isn't S-video (in the sense that that term used for televisions and VCRs). It's something else that uses the same socket standard, usually proprietary. For example, my video card uses a 7-pin breakout squid for component video out.

Yes, you can find them (I probably have a dozen by this point) but I don't know how you'd go about confirming electrical compatibility. Best bet would probably be to make friends with someone who builds custom computers and might have some hanging around. I'd imagine that particular families of cards (HD48xx or GeForce 8800, for example) are likely electrically compatible...
