    No its not what your thinking! :o
    It's for my video card output, sound card output, mouse and keyboard either USB or PS\2. I want to play PC Games on my HDTV but I dont want to move my computer. Need at least 12 ft, 24 ft would be nice.
    I've seen S-video cables for the video card but have yet to run across any RCA cables with 1\8 in male input on one end for the soundcard, I also have not seen any extensions for USB or PS\2. Please help.

    Update.... After doing a little calling around (Acually 1 call to Cables and Connector Technologies)
    I was able to find a 25ft s-video cable for $7.99, 10ft USB and 15ft PS\2 extensions for $2 apeice but I still havent found a sound card to TV cable. I think this one is going to be tough. What do you guys use?

    You do know that you will lose some signal strength when you use longer cords? I've been told that extending SVideo cables too far will cause serious lose of clairity .... might be worth some research.

    Prolly best to use as heavy of speaker wires as possible if you are going to keep the sound quality. You can always buy the wires and jacks separatly and connect them yourself. I'm not sure about finding premade cables with 1/8" jacks but I do know that you can get adapters from RCA to 1/8". (More connections = more lose of signal and more to go wrong).

    USB extension cords can be found but would a good cordless mouse and keyboard work at those distances?

    Damn, I just ordered a 25ft S-video cable before I seen your post, I could have easy got by with a 12 footer! The guy I ordered from told me that I wouldn't lose any picture quality and the only thing that I ordered that has length limitations due to cable extensions is USB and that can't exceed 15 ft without some type of enhancer.

    The soundcard to T.V. cable is going to be the toughest thing. I do have a subwoofer for this P.C. with left and right wire jacks that I might be able to use to run a RCA cable to the TV and then cut the other RCA ends off for the Subwoofer. Not sure if that'll work or not.

    I'm not to fond of cordless. Sitting 10 ft away from the P.C which is about 7ft to the right away from my 50in TV would require better quality cordless keyboards and most of all mice than what I've used so far to date. I really think cables are my best solution unless I move my big corner made computer desk out and place the P.C. directly infront of the T.V..
