    ok, I got the buddy cable to work. It required major surgery I have a 1.5 meter s-video so I cut It half and tried numerous wire connections while the controllers where configured as master and slave, both controllers are td6i and master was bound to the aircraft .So this how I figured it, un shielded wires from both sides are joined together, i soldered all my connections, the red and black wires from both sides are bundled together and soldered,this leaves brown and a very pale wire,guess what you have to do, yup, the wires from both sides of the cable are
    bundled together and soldered.
    the only down side the slave model had no control over throttle , this may be normal or not, I will look into it. The switch use to control master and slave works perfectly , I hope this helps other , and all ways available to discuss this topic Regards Gary

    My mistake, I meant TD6i, no matter how I configure them they just wont allow a master and a slave using the s- video cable. so no signal can pass to the aircraft. I do however get a " s"" indication on the tx that is to be the slave but no indication on the selected master tx. any ideas would be very helpful,
    thanks Gary
