i was looking at the s video out on my card and noticed that it has 6 holes NOT 4 like the 4 prong svideo cables that i own. needless to say, none of my cables plug into this jack. i've turned up nothing as far as adapters on google either. any advice?

i included the type of card in the subject line, but not the manufacturer. LeadTek Geforce2 GTS 32mb.

best guess off of the top of my head is that it is a composite plug, combonation of a video, left and right audio. they are quite common for computers. never have been able to figure why one would be used on a video card, but I've seen them used in video cards quite a bit.

if possible take a picture of the port for us and a better guess can be given.

well, the instructions that came with the card say it's an s-video tv out port. it even came with a ft. long s-video cable that obviously doesn't fit. :confused:

OK, some Leadtek cards comes with an "Octopus" adapter (proprietary), what happens is it goes into the "plug" on the card, then "fan out" to 1 standard SVHS and 1 RCA connector. IOW, the "plug" on the card is NOT a standard SVHS connection. You need to check the manual of the card on the parts that comes in the retail box, or go to Leadtek website.

wow, thx for your help guys! unfortunately $20 is not worth it for "trying out" the video output on a geforce2. it amazes me that they didn't include the adapter in the retail box. oh well, thx again.
