cable type question

Hi all,

I will be travelling to switzerland shortly, staying there for several months.

In the US/Canada there are some cable standards such as Svideo, composite for video Out from a satellite receiver.

Does anyone know what type of cables are used in switzerland? can anyone tell me names of the cables?

I will be using a PC with a capture card that takes composite IN to view satellite programs on my PC.

Re: cable type question

You'll find all the same standard analog connections on equipment here, as well as SCART which is really popular in europe. Adpators can be readily found here. HDMI is on pretty much all new equipment too. I don't really have too much to worry about.
