    Hi all, 1. Are s-video cables usually male to male? 2. If I want to connect s-video 'out' to the s-video 'in' on another component, is this the configuration of cable that I require? The problem is that I can connect my DVD recorder to my Thomson DTH 7000e and record to the Thomson hard drive, but I can't seem to get a link from the Thomson hard drive to record to my DVD recorder. The reason being is that certain recordings I wish to keep on a DVD-R disc. Any other suggestions?

    I take it you understand you need 2 x S-Video cables - assuming your DVD Recorder has an S-Video Input for the return signal from the Thomson DVD/HDR.

    The DTH 700E has separate S-Video In and S-Video out and your DVD Recorder will require the same if you want to Record onto DVD from the HDR.

    Both cables will be Male to Male S-Video.

    Best regards

    Joe, I was only going to connect s-video out on the Thomson to the s-video in on my dvd recorder so that I can record from the Thomson, transfer is OK in the other direction

    So assuming you have an S-Video cable in place from the S-Video Out on the Thompson to the S-Video In on the DVD Recorder have you ensured your units are set to send and receive S-Video on the relevant Inputs and Outputs; I know with my Pioneer DVD-R you have to tell it what to look for and what to send.

    Best regards
