S-Video to S-Video

I’ve just bought myself a PC, and now I want to watch the DVD’s on my telly.
I’ve got an S-Video input in my TV, so as far as I know, I need an S-Video to S-Video cable.
Is S-Video to S-Video better than S-Video to Scart? Or is it the same quality?
How much does these cables cost? I need 6 meters.
I’ve heard that they shouldn’t cost more than £7. Is that true? I’ve found some S-Video to Scart ones, and they are around £25!!!
If there are any cheap places in London to get the cables, any hints would be appreciated!

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

CPC would probably be my first choice for cheap cables

Then try Philex in North London

Try to keep S Video to S video this will be more expensive but if the right cable is used then generally the quality will be better.

If you follow the scart route then generally you will potentially loose the S video quality. many will input the signal just as a CVBS , if your TV is greater then lets say 25 " then it generally better to keep the S video to S video.

Just a thought that the s video leads come in a couple of types, I think. The 4 pin one is just for video - if you want audio as well you may need the type with additional phono plugs if you havent got a spare set left over from your hi fi you can use...:cool:
