    Default Dreamcast Interact / Pelican S-Video cable quality

    I'm looking for a set of Dreamcast S-Video cables, and I'm seeing two different sets around. There's the Interact ones, and then there's the Pelican ones. Some Amazon reviewers are saying that the Pelican ones are trash, but I've found little information on the Interact ones.

    Which one is better? I'm looking for a set that has S-Video and RCA outputs. Or if anyone has another suggestion, I'm all ears.

    sure you don't wanna run through a VGA box? Best way to go with a DC!

    I can't capture stuff with a VGA box. I thought about it, but nah. I'd rather get a simple cable setup. Unless you think the VGA box is better for what I want to do?

    get the vga box.they normally also have s-video, composite, and audio ports on them. this will allow you to use standard svideo cable of any quality/brand you want instaed of having to use a dedicated dreamcast cable, and of course you get the option of using the beautiful vga output.

    VGA output?

    I'm not sure I want to pay twenty bucks plus shipping for this... All I want to do is record stuff, after all.
