I've seen S-Video cables for sale up to 150' long. Although I can't image
that there would not be some sort of signal degradation over that long a run.
I have not done that long myself. I don't think there is a max length so to
speak, but there is probably a limit at which you need to amplify or go to a
different kind of cable then convert back.
But in your case, 20 feet, you should be fine if you get a good quality cable
that long. A good quality 25' cable should run between $30-40 USD. I would
avoid really cheap ones. You could spend more on professional A/V stuff
(like $75 or so) but that could be overkill for ya.
Best of luck
