IIRC, it's just a standard S-Video cable.

It's a standard PS2 connector. You will need one that is male to male like this:

Yep, sure looks like one to me. You can pick up a short S cable at walmart cheap. Or you could just ask Pappy, I know he has an extra one laying around. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

S!

i was looking at those last week but didn't get one as the 52 end has a bump on the bottom , the ps2 cable is just round
