Video cable extender?
Does anyone know if there is such a thing as a video cable extender? I am trying to hook up an xbox to my home entertainment center, but I can't get the video and audio to work on the same channel. So I was going to just bypass the entertainment center by extending the video cable directly to the TV while still routing the audio to the surround sound unit.
I need a video cable with a male connector at one end and a female connector at the other. Does this exist? Where can I get one?

any radio shack best buy or frys should have them... gonna run probably more than 50 dollars... why not just go buy the ends you need and cable and build them for cheaper ?He who seeks vengeance must dig two graves. One for his enemy, and one for himself.-- Lao Tzu

The home theater system is a magnavox "Digital Surround Sound Reciever" model # MFX-450.
Is that possible Jokostel? I've done that with a coaxial cable, but I've never tried it with a video cable.
I have a video cable with 2 male connectors that came with the surround sound unit. All I would need is the female connector.

shoudlnt be a problem if you wanna use a coupler... i dont see a reason as to why that wouldnt work... its a passthough. never thought about couplers... you may get a little extra noise... but probably so minute you wont notice.He who seeks vengeance must dig two graves.

I've used RCA couplers before, they work just fine... and if for some reason it doesnt solve your problem you're only out a few dollars

ok, the coupler in the link above worked like a champ. My living room sounds like an absolute warzone now.
