    I got mine, a 10m one, from the Sony Centre in Leeds. Prowire by Vivanco. £35. They also do a 5m one.

    The signal quality as viewed on my 108" screen from my VW10HT, is indistinguishable from that obtained via a cheap 1 metre cable (yes, I stood the DVD player on a step-ladder next to the projector to try it out).

    Or lektropacks will make up custom cables to length and offer various different "qualities".

    You don't say how long you need the cable to be. I always though that 5 metres was the longest preferable before deteriation of the signal started. BUT! I demoed an S-V cable made by Glaive, which was around 15m long. It gave picture quality at least as good as my 5m Puresonic cable! Contact Glaive at: http://www.supracables.co.uk I found them very helpful.

    I've got "several" 10m gold s-video cables. I used to have a PC business and used them for HCPC builds.

    You can have one "for not much" + Postage, say £5 all in.

    email if you still require one
