    Hi Folks,

    My nVidia 6600GT video card does HDTV component video, but the
    connector on the back of the card is an s-video mini-DIN type. The card
    did not come with the Component cable adapter and the suppliers
    (xpcomputers) have been useless.

    Doees anyone know where I can get a suitable adapter?

    From memory, which means I could well be wrong, s-video contains a luma
    channel and a joint cb/cr channel. I.e. pulling it apart into YCbCr or
    even RGB is way beyond trivial. You'd probably do better looking to hook
    the DVI plug (it does have DVI, right) into the HDTV, many of which
    apparently ship with DVI.

    its other pins on the same plug, not an adaptor that pulls the svideo signal
    apart to make component.
