    what cables are you talking about ?

    there is one power connector.. the other cables in teh bundle go @ the back of the card... mainly for audio and stuff... I think :)

    no need for me to use the s-video since I have all the media stuff on my pc :)

    tv tuner and dvd I mean..

    also the audio convertor thinger @ the back I also don't use... again.. no need since I have an audigy..

    why does that card have audio capabilities? this for input or output?

    vivo...

    there is an rca cable that comes with it...

    the card itself I doubt has anything to do with audio per se... but output is necessary to go with ViVo.. :)

    s-video handles this... but in case of no s-video you have the rca cable adaptor thinger...

    i don't understand. s-video doesn't carry any audio signals. matter of fact, no video type does, except the old coaxial (uhf/vhf)cable connection.

    are you talking about this cable?
