    I just bought a Gamecube for 79.99 with luigi and a memory card from Argos, then bought a madcatz SVHS lead which will not work with the gamecube but works fine with my N64.
    Is there a problem with my gamecube or does it not output SVHS as in the manual it only mentions video out and RGB out

    The PAL version Gamecube does not output S-Video so you will have to use, RGB Scart, Component Video or Composite Video :).

    Please excuse my ignorance, but where can you get a Gamecube component cable? I have done a moderate amount of searching, but can't find one.

    They are not available in the UK High Steet. Nintendo only released the Component Cable in the US and Japan. You can import one quite easily. Choose from one of the following:

    God! That must be the quickest reply in the history of the forums!

    Does this mean that you need an imported 'cube, or will these cables work with UK spec machines?

    I've seen quicker :laugh:.

    You don't need an import Cube - the PAL Cube supports Component Video output in the exact same way :).

    Evidently ;)

    Thanks for the help. I may have to buy one, seeing as they are now relatively cheap. Are Argoss still the cheapest/best deal?

    I have a £30 off voucher for a Gamecube which you can gladly have for £10, and thus save yourself £20 in the process ;). The voucher came with the GBA SP and all you have to do is send it off with your Gamecube Till receipt, and those lovely people at Nintendo send you back a cheque for £30.

    Hi

    Will the Big N allow the £30.00 voucher Back on a Cube which was brought at Argos for £78.99 ? ? ( I don't Think So )

    What do you think the Big N would say about the Gube / Memory
    Card & Game for £48.99 :nono:

    I Think it would Be Noooooooooooooooooooo

    Buy the way have you still got the Voucher , is so I might take it of your Hands for a Big Ben

    I know but not as much as They would Like :laugh:

    They should have made the Cube a better price to start with
    then they may have Sold more Cubes :smashin:

    But like you have said they will still make money on that Price


    :smoke:
