I know that they do come single or dual with audio/video outputs on the opposite end or just a single video one but are this 2 totally dfferent types of Svideo connections? Because I had a single video output S video connector that was for my PC video board and it broke so I replaced it with a dual output one as it was the only thing available in the market outthere but nothing comes out! So are this 2 S cables completely different technologies incompatible with each other or what?

Maybe someone else can answer you better.
In the meantime...
I've never heard of more than one kind of S-Video connection.
I use S-Video so have looked around for cables, etc., and believe the sockets and connectors are all the same.
Yes, some cables come just with the S-Video connector, and some include the dual audio RCA connectors too. That doesn't make any difference. The S-Video connectors and sockets are the same.
When we talk about connectors, the terminology is male and female. Most cables are double male, i.e. a male on each end of the cable. Most sockets installed in electronic equipment are female.
So when you say you installed a dual output connector on your PC video board, I really have no idea what you mean. My guess is you would have to install the same kind as the original.
