Hi,

Hope thisis the right forum.

I have a Location A, where I have a phone connection (for broadband) and this is where I will be setting up my Router for broadband connection.

From Location A, I have a s-video (5 pin i think) cable running to Location B, where I will have my Blu Ray DVD Player (BD60) that has a functon to get to Y-Tube  and internet etc.

In my Broadband router, there is a LAN like connection with a blue cable.

I wanted to know if I can somehow utilise the existing s-video cable to connect the router to the DVD Player for internet.

I am good at soldering so can chop up the connectors and jimmy my own, unless there are some simple converters etc i can buy.

NB; I also have 3 RCA (Component) cables running form A to B as well that i cna use if needed

Please help

Richard

Dont think you can, probably not enough wires.
Just easier to run CAT5/6 from your router to the Blu-ray player.

Could it work at CAT3 specs perhaps??
You only need 2 pairs for a network connection and s-video has 5 wires I think.
The main problem is that the wires in the s-video lead won't be twisted in pairs like an ethernet cable.
How long is the s-video cable?

The S-video and component cables between A and B are about 8 meters

There are too many obstacles, like 2nd floor above with no celing space, metal beams and a couple of walls.

If you don't actually need the svideo cable, there's going to be a lot less pain if you just use that cable to pull through a network cable instead ...

S video wont work. I dont think the wires are twisted in pairs inside the cable. If they are not twisted pair, then it wont work - period.

How easy is it to tug on the cable and pull it a few inches? - as said above, if you think you can then use some electrical tape and join a cat5 cable on one end then use the s-video as a guide cable and pull it through the walls
