S-Video For NES???

Anybody here know the best way to hook up my NES w/ S-Video (preferred) or component video cables? I know the "toaster" system has component outs, but I recently got a top-loader, which doesn't have these. I found a couple of products at buy-rite, but I'm not sure if they would work well or if I could pick them up at Radio Shack under some different name (I think I saw that once in this forum) at a much reduced rate.

Anyway, here's what they have at buy-rite:

S-Video Cable

Composite -> S-Video Adapter

Thanks in advance!

Wouldn't it be cheaper just to buy another NES that has the connectors and cables you want off fleabay?

You mean composite, right? The NES definitely did NOT have component.

I bought a combo PS2/Nintendo/Xbox cable with s-video output from Target a while back. I think it was about $9. It was the Madcatz brand.

Yes, I meant composite. Sorry about that.

The original NES cannot be hooked up with the multitude of SNES/N64/GCN S-Video connectors. It only has a single composite output for an RF adaptor.

The devices I linked to are supposed to convert the single composite output to S-Video, but I need some further explanation as to how that works, how effective it is, or if there is a cheaper way.

There was never a NES that could be hooked up via S-Video, so I can't just "buy one on EBay."

Thanks again.
