    Greetings.
    I'm thinking of upgrading the s-video cable that came with my DVD player. Any recommendations? Does a higher quality s-video cable really make a big difference in picture quality? Is it like night and day?
    Thanks for your help.

    It's safe to say that most any aftermarket cable is better than the cables included with most consumer A/V devices.
    Whether or not you'll see a difference depends on a few things, mostly the quality of your display. Since retail outlets generally have generous return and exchange policies, I would encourage you to pick up a cable or two and try them out yourself.
    FWIW, I use a Monster Cable S-Video cable to connect my DVD-Player to my receiver and then another one going from my receiver to my TV.
