    Derek-

    For S-Video & VGA (I assume, HD15 computer connection) its really best to buy them. These cables are rather hard to make and require above average sodering skills and 3 hands. Radio Shack has 30+ feet s-video cable for a reasonable price and you can get a VGA PC cable from a PC maker for significantly less then what the audiophile/videophile companies charge.
