 coaxial cable to S-video
I need to connect my cable box which only has coaxial cable (RG-59) out-put to a converter box (PALS to NTSC) which only has a female S-video in-put. I need some sort of an adapter to convert the coaxial cable to an S-video cable.

Thank you

Dear Steven

You will need a device that includes a tuner (for the RF) and an S-Video output like a VCR which would tune to the channel and provide an output in S-Video format.
