Is there any differences between brand names? If so, what? Where is the best (economical) place to buy? Thanks...

I've often heard that there is no real difference in the quality of different brand name cables (not that I agree). But, whatever you buy, the shorter the better. I personally bought the low-end monster S-video cable (sorry, can't remember the price). Whatever you buy will be a HUGE improvement over composite video! Good Luck

My local Sears sells Acoustic Research cables and I think I paid $20 for a six foot length.

There were a couple of well posted discussions of these cable issues a couple weeks ago - do a search of the archives for cables. They also included some good sites to order cables.
