Wanted: Computer cable

I'm looking for a cable. On one side, it has the monitor port that goes into the computer. On the other side, it's a round thing which has 8 pins. Like this:


I'm not sure what I'm looking for at all! Does anyone have a good quality one or know where I can buy one from? Or indeed what it'd be called!

It's for the TV box that's connected to my PC/monitor so I can watch TV. The cable is playing up.

Thanks :-)
Included please.

Can you take a picture of the cable thats playing up?
Like this?
The svideo side is the http://pan1.fotovista.com/dev/1/8/00857381/g_00857381.jpg by esq. Not the fewer pins one.

And it's vga on the other side.

I think!!!

Thanks for the help guys.
if its a svga to Composite like in that pic i will shove you one in the post on monday for nothing

pm me your address if you want it
Hi djnaff, thanks for the offer but I need the entire cable. That 8 pin on one side and the vga port on the other, the full cable.

Still had no luck finding it :-(
If you're having trouble getting exactly what you're after can't you use the Amazon one posted above, then take a converter from Djnaff and all you'll need then is a comsposite male to male adapter to link them together and hey presto,
'VGA - Composite'(amazon) -> Converter -> S Video converter(Djnaff) = 8 pin S Video output.

Possibly instead of a converter you may already have a composite male to male lead lying around the house, something like

Or pos ask the seller of item 180330730341 if its an 8 pin SVideo their selling, although it is from HK.
To be honest Beanz, I don't know what I'm looking for (sure I could buy it if I knew the name!) though all those words were very technical!!

I don't know why I'd want a composite lead as I need one side to be VGA and one side only to be svideo!
Had no luck with this, just need to know what the name is of the cable I want :-(
