    Hey all,

    Im about to get my gamecube (usa import) and was just wondering about the best conneciotns. I have a Tosh 40"RP TV which has 3 scart, 1 compoint and svideo. I have the Yamaha 620 amp.

    I would really like to be able to plug the cube into the amp - can i do this by svideo ?

    I tied with the ps2 but wasnt able to, even tho sony do an ps2-svideo cable ?

    ta in advance,

    Nige

    I'm not sure about the GC but I have my PS2 connected to my amp via S-Video and then out from my amp to tv via S-Video to S-Video(or sometimes I use an S-Video to scart lead as I don't have to use the front panel on the tv then). The connector on my PS2 is a PS2 connector with a black box that has 3 composite connections and an S-Video output connection. So if the GC has the ability to output S-Video you should be able to do something similar. BTW I connect my PS2 to my amp via digital cable for sound.

    yes

    the s video cable for the gcube is the same as the one for the n64 and this is how i currently have my gcube connected via my processor. i also have my ps2 connected via s video via my processor too. don't understand why yours didn't work.
