Hi Scott!

I may be out of luck with a solution to this question, but how will I know if I don't ask? Here's my question...

I have a Hollywood Plus DVD Decoder in an ancient 233Hz MMX computer. I remember it worked splendidly (and I believe it still does), but I've noticed that I've lost the pass-through cable the card came with which allowed me to display the images (movie) on my computer monitor. I also remember there was a dedicated website for RealMagic Hollywood Plus DVD Decoders and their successor (X-Card?) but I neither remember the name of the site or know if it is still in existence. Would you know if it is still possible to obtain this cable or am I going to have to trash the card? Is it possible to create my own cable in order to solve this problem? Is there any documentation still available for the card in the nooks and crannies of the Internet universe?

TIA for you help!

BTW, I initially found the dedicated site from a link in a spot that was not too obvious on http://www.sigmadesigns.com. It was hard to find at the time and I haven't managed to find such a link currently.

There is an old review of that card here. The cable in question is a standard DE-15 VGA out to a mini-DIN VGA in. A quick search for "mini-DIN VGA pass-through" turns up a new replacement for only $7.25. Let me know how it works out. Scott.
