Hi everyone I have just cut my 4 pin svhs to scart cable so that I can solder a phono port onto it in order to plug my rca cable into it and output it onto my tv. I am doing this because I want to connect my second pc to my bedroom tv but i just discovered that I can't use my 7 pin svhs to rca converter because the radeon 7500 i have in my second pc doesnt have 7 pin svhs whereas my radeon 8500 does and i dont want to use a radeon 7500 in my main pc. does anyone know which wires I would need 2 solder In order to make a custom converter. I have already got all the stuff to make one just need to know what cables need soldering where. help greatly apriciated thanks,
p.s sorry about my poor punctuation

If I understand you correctly, your best bet is to go to Radio Shack and get an S-video to Composite adapter, (I purchased one a year ago for $5.00) you will need an S-Video cable and a composite cable.

Radio Shack good idea :) but I like to touch all around with my hands. Use this if you have  same hands.

SVHS                                             Tulipin
               24 Ohm          24 Ohm
pin 3 ------|====|--+----|====|--------------- signal pin
                              |
                            -----  
                            -----   470 pF
                24 Ohm   |
pin 4 ------|====|--+

pin 2 ------------------------------------------------ shield
