    I recently ordered an Xbox Hi-Def kit from DVDCrave and after being told that they were waiting for stock for the last three weeks they have now emailed me to say that they will not be getting them in at all!! Hmmff!

    Is there a cable available in the UK that can give me S-vid out (Non Scart) and digital optical out?

    I want this to connect my Xbox to my Projector and amp. I did want the Hi-Def kit for the component connections but I have since got a new DVD player with compinent outs so these inputs on the projector are spoken for now!!

    Hi,

    I have the same problem - DVDcrave just cancelled my order for HiDef pack. Can't say I'm that impressed with their service - an apology might have been in order after waiting for three weeks.

    I've been looking for a new supplier, and LikSang have what I want - they also appear to have a cable that is scart/s-vid switchable with optical out. Can't vouch for LikSang as I've never used them but worth a look:

    www.lik-sang.com are a very good company to deal with.

    I've ordered a few PS2 things via them and got everything within three days. Great prices and a great service.

    I'll be ordering up my Xbox cables etc.. from them when I get my console :D

    What is it like ordering from Lik-sang, I have been tempted by a few things that are cheap, cables etc. Any Customs Probs? Some Lik-Sang stuff, is 5 times more if you buy it from UK import specialists, do they think we're stupid?

    Porrm,

    The High-Def Kit doesn't have s-video, just component. What you need is the Advanced AV Pack, which has s-video and optical out. If you're interested, I could sell you mine for 15 quid? It's hardly been used, I only needed it for my US xbox until the Advanced Scart came out.

    I wanted component out's when I ordered the Hi-Def kit but since I got a new DVD player that uses these I now need S-vid out. However I need a dedicated s-vid out and not the scart variety so that I can connect it straight to my projector!

    Cheers, I'll have a look at the site you've recommended.
