I cna't believe either the characteristic impedance or the construction
is the same between ADB and S-video cables. Electrically the connections
should be the same, but if you use a ADB cable for S-video, you might
well get noticeable reflections.
IIRC, S-video has 2 ground pins on the connector, and there's nothing to
stop them being commoned in the cable. Would that cuase a problem if
sucha a cable was used for ADB?
