ok that solved part of the problem, ive done the same thing (with cellophane) but the cable is only 6ft and im using that for my laptop. i need the same cable but abut 25ft to use with my desktop. i haven't seen any svideo that long, probably for quality purposes.

Best Buy sells a recoton 25ft svideo cable. You could pick one up from there or stores like it.

yeah, they should have it there. You could always use electrical tape. Being that it's usually black, it will blend right in.

i agree with bangbang023, the only longer than 6-12ft svideo are usually premium quality, and I dont think the cable your looking for exists esp in that length, the only other thing is i have an adapter that is rca female to 3.5 minijack, so if you hade a 25foot cable like the one in your first post all you would need is adapter like that, if you need a pic of what im tlaking about ill try and find the thing

i know what youre talking about, i just want to do this with as few cables as possible to eliminate clutter (and to a lesser extent, preserve signal quality). thanks for the help.
