    I just got a used Nvidia video card from a friend of mine, but he lost the TV-out cable. Is there a place where I can buy one (other than eBay)?

    The connecter on the card looks like this:

    It's not an s-video port, at least not one that will take a standard cable (yes, I tried). I think it's a VIVO port. This is an old card, it doesn't use the same TV-out connecter that the current Nvidia cards use.

    Anyhow, thanks for the replies, but never mind. It's past time to upgrade my whole system, and I'll be getting a new video card with a different TV-out connecter when I do it.

    Call NVIDIA and tell them you lost yours.
    They sent me a replacement free.

    Never even asked for a serial number or anything.

    That's not true. My 7800GTX has a vivo port on it , as does my leadtek 4200 vivo edition.
