    I have a Sylvania portable DVD player. The instructions mention a cable so that the player can be connected to the composite input of a TV. The plug needs to have 4 connection points, and fit a miniature sized jack. The connections are common (most likely the shield), composite video, right, and left audio.

    I have checked Sylvania's website, and several other sites, but cannot findone. Any suggestions of where I might find something like this?

    Is it a 3.5mm jack with 4 segments?

  3. I have cables of this sort for both a Sony pocket LCD TV and a
    Polaroid-branded DVD player. I believe this sort of cable is more or less
    standardized. That worst that can happen is that you'll have to experiment to
    figure out what-goes-where. No big deal.

    Here's one. I'm sure you'll be able to find others -- with a little effort and
    common sense.

    3.5mm? Check the signals order with the following

    Then look on eBay for a cable compatible with what's mentioned. If it's
    the first, then a 3.5mm cable for Archos, Gigabeat, Creative Zen Vision
    Series, Cown iAudio, Apple iBook will do.

    I'm surprised pin 2 is the ground on most of these, as you'd expect that the
    shield would be easier to connect to pin 1.
