    I just bought a GC on Saturday, and was very miffed to find the the old S-Video lead that I had for my N64 does not seem to work on the GC. The adapter into the box is the same but I get no picture or sound!!!!!!!!

    Anyone know whether this should work or not?

    Oh and by the way what is the Digital AV socket for?? Even the Instruciton manual says nothing about it! :confused:

    I might be right in saying that the GC doesn't do S-Video, but only composite and RGB.

    I'm sure there have been other posts on here about the digital socket, but if not you can always pop over to the forums at www.final-level.com - great gaming chat over there :)

    You are right - no S-Video on GC.

    I believe the Digital Out is for Component Output for HDTV's etc.

    It's true, Nintendo decided to disable S-video for PAL gamecubes.

    The digital out on PAL machines is just for interlaced mode with component cables.
    Progressive scan has been disabled by Nintendo for PAL Gamecubes. Oh goody...

    Nintendo decided to re-wire the GC multi-AV output for PAL gamecubes. US cables won't work. At the moment, only official Nintendo Scarts will give RGB, 3rd party ones can only give composite. It's all a bit cack.
