    Hi! i'm trying to setup a long run cabling using RG59. I heard RG59 cables can be used to bout 1,000ft.

    My question is, how can i connect a MiniDin4 connector to a RG59 cable?
    Is it possible?

    Thanks.

    Regards,
    Jaraju

    Hello both

    I hope your not trying to send an un-amplified S-Video signal over a 1000ft run - that's not going to happen; no matter what cable you use.

    Have you considered going CAT5?
