Windows 7: 6-connector VIVO splitter cable

6-connector VIVO splitter cable

As seen in the image in the top right of the Wikipedia page:
Video-in video-out - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I've been looking for a cable like that to use with Video input, with little success. I have come across a few VIVO cables, but not any with their purpose fulfilled: Video In and Video Out. Does anyone know where I can buy one of these?

Does your card support VIVO? Check with your card OEM. Surely, they should be able to supply the cord. As shown in the pin-out, they can vary. I have an eight pin that breaks out S-video and composite but it's for my TV card.

Update: After checking your card specs, I assume it's not for that. 'Cause it ain't gonna happen.

The picture of the graphics card shown on the page (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi.../Vivo_card.jpg) is the exact same type of port as on my card

That's not a HIS Radeon HD 7870. I was going by your specs. Check with the OEM.

Yeah, it's not for my computer, it's a Dell XPS 420 which isn't mine, and I don't know the graphics card it has.

You MUST get a DIN connector that matches the card. You'll have to check Hardware Manager and get the hardware ID to identify the card and go from there. Or if the card isn't installed yet, physically examine the card for an OEM sticker or card model number. The pinouts shown for VIVO don't appear match the card in your link. The link shows evenly spaced pin sockets and pinout shows offset pins. (Also different indexing keys.)

Oh wow, that's pretty inconsistent. I mean, it's the same Wikipedia page. Why couldn't there be a standard port for this? I can't check what card it is right now, all I know is it's not Nvidia. As I said though, I know what the port looks like, the one on the graphics card picture.

Knowing what the port looks like doesn't help. I can't see all the indexes either. You need to know what card since you'll probably have to go to that OEM for the cable or at least search for a cable using the card model.

I did a brief search for that picture but couldn't match it up. So.....Get the card model number. You'll need the drivers for it any way.

Well I should hopefully have access to the PC in 3 or 4 days, will check on it then, and bump post when I get the model.

Will this cable work to extend coaxial cable for cable box?
Getting a new TV and placing it in a different spot than where the old TV is and I realized the coaxial cable coming from the wall isn't going to reach the new location for cable box's "Cable IN" connection. Can I use this as an extension? It looks right to me but I just want to be sure.

4-pin Fan Splitter
I am going to upgrade the fans on my CPU cooler with 4-pin fans so I can take advantage of the 4-pin connector on my motherboard. The cooler has mounts for (2) fans. All I am finding is 3-pin splitters, like this one, but not a 4-pin splitter. Thanks for any help! :D

Can I use a Y-splitter printer cable? Do they work?
I was looking at this cable and I know it doesn't work because the red connector only carries power and no data. Is there a Y-splitter printer cable that will work? I don't want to buy a print router because my workload does not require one and if a y-splitter doesn't work will this hub work?
