    Thanks. I was trying to find an affordable component cable - all the ones I could find before were twice the price.
    I'd moved the DVD player closer to the projector to avoid paying lots and lots for the cable.

    I'm using that one as well - I also ordered a cheapy 5m one (blonggest in that range) for £5 to compare, and I can't see any difference, so for video, you don't need to spend a lot of money on cable.

    I bought 30m of 75ohm Co-ax from Nexnix and soldered on thier own gold plated RCA's (£1-£2 each can't remember) Connected from DVD to TV, picture looks the same as 1m Ixos cable. Certainly no probs with the PJ.

    If you want value for money but high quality try the cables at intoav.com They make up the stuff BBC broadcast use for thier installs.
    A 10m custom made component , SVHS and composite set cost me £89 and its very good.

    I'm also interested in component cables but need 15m. Farnell only do 10m.

    Anyone know where to get 15m component cables from which are good but reasonably priced?

    Cheers,
    Cal.

    SVHS is a type of video tape. You mean S-Video.

    Try the guys at Scorpion Cables for decent quality component cables, which you'll need if you're running 10m+

    Thanks Tim,

    Your tip seems to be the first for a 15m reasonably priced cable.

    There may be better cable out there from the other tips for about £150 but I think the 30 quid cable plus say a Yamaha prog scan dvd player for another £133 would improve my picture more.

    Cheers,
    Cal.
