    I have this cable on one end its USB and on the other end its an "S" cable connector. I have never seen anything like this before. I don't know how I acquired it either.

    Sounds like a digital camera cable, I'm pretty sure that I've seen cables like you describe before...

    Is the s-video end male or female? In other words is it an input for a computer or an ouptut to a tv/receiver?

    I found this:
    http://www.national-tech.com/specs/uav-113.htm
    which is an input cable that replaces video capture cards.

    Hope this helps.

    "S" cable portion of it is male.

    If I go from my DVD ("S") and plug it into a USB port. I won't be able to view it on my computer unless I have a decoder card.
