This is a copy of the original Nintendo brand S-Video cable. Short of the genuine Nintendo S-video cable ( which is hard to find and expensive ) this is the best you can get. This cable is 1.8m long, approximately 6 feet.
It will give you true S-video. Do not let yourself be fooled by those inexpensive S-video cables that offer composite ( the yellow cable ) on top of the S-video connector. Just about all of them are wired wrong and do not really output S-video, they route composite to the S-video connector instead. I bought some of them myself and learned it the hard way. Even the brand that comes in a nice little box is wired wrong and will not give you true s-video.
The resulting picture on those fake cables is of horrible quality, worst than Composite itself. You will get what is commonly known as the checkerboard effect on top of washed out colors. The result might vary depending on your TV set and how they natively filter the signals you feed them.
I tried those bad cables on a Sony trinitron CRT and the result was horrible.
Those things should not even be on the market but they are all over ebay.
If you want true S-video out of your SNES, Gamecube or N64, those cables I sell are the cables to get. Just about all the cables that also have the yellow RCA connector are wired wrong. The only exception I know of are the 3 in 1 cables from monster cables and those are no longer easily available.
Note: Does not work with the SNES mini ( This variant does not output s-video)
*Disclaimer about compatibility with ''modern'' Hardware*
S-video is a standard that is not always very well supported nowadays. Especially low resolution S-video such as what comes out of a SNES or N64. S-video Compatibility with old consoles is best achieved on old school CRT televisions. This is where this cable will shine the most and give you the most consistent results with, as far as I know, 100% compatibility. There can occasionally be issues with modern (LCD etc) television sets, and to a somewhat higher degree when using things like upscaler/HDMI converters or capture devices. While it still works fine for more users, a minority of people experience issues such as bleeding, streaking or checkerboard. These issues are not caused by the cable but by s-video incompatibility between the consoles and the devices it is connected to.
Please consider this information before buying. This being said, I always accept return for these items, whatever the reason is. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions or technical issues.
European/Pal users please read!
This cable is designed for NTSC consoles. They may not work with PAL consoles or require additional components to function properly. At this time I was made aware it does not work on PAL Gamecube, requires additional components on PAL N64. PAL SNES compatibility is unknown.
Note: The S-Video cables are not compatible with the redesigned Super Nintendo.
