Cable for ATI Rage Fury TV-Out

I just purchased a new computer with a 32mb ATI Rage Fury video card w/ TV-Out. There is no cable for the Computer to TV connection. Connector (S-Vid Out) looks like a female 7-pin Mini DIN? Where can I purchase this cable or an adaptor? Thanks.

This is called an S-VIDEO cable and can be purchased any any electronics store that sells high-end video equipment.  Places like Best Buy, Circuit City, etc if you are in the US.  Of course to use it you must have a TV, VCR, or tuner that takes S-Video as input and not all do.  If not, then you can also get S-Video to NTSC or PAL converter boxes at many of the same places.
* s-video has a 4-pin mini-DIN connector !
* I don't know the Rage Fury card, but most TV cards or framegrabbers support s-video *and* composite.
Composite is just a simple (2-wire) cinch cable

composite pinout: chrominance + luminance
s-video pinout: ground + ground + chrominance + luminance

The female connector on the Rage Fury is definitely 7-Pin and the S-Video input on my TV is a standard 4-Pin Mini DIN. I guess the Rage is either a specialty connector or else some of the pins are not used.
