    I have recently purchased a sanyo z3 pj. I have connected my dvd and freeview to it at the mo with standard s video and component cables, the picture quality is - lets just say, not very good.

    I want to connect both up over 10m with some fairly good leads and dont want to break the bank (under £100 for both unless I would REALLY notice the difference !)

    I would also like to know if it would be better to use some kind of junction box and have just the one component lead connected as apposed to the s video and the component for each device- if so where would i find such a junction box ?

    What Outputs are available on your two source devices and do you have an AV Receiver with video switching on-board?

    Best regards

    Tricky one!!!

    If you hadn't mentioned budget I'd have suggested:

    Replace the Freeview for one with YUV out on SCART - SRP £90.00 (see http://www.iplayer.co.uk/index1.asp)

    Add a JS Technology Master Component controller - SRP £50.00.

    Add a 1m VanDamme SCART to 3RCA cable - approx £40.00.

    Add a 1m VanDamme 3RCA to 3RCA cable - approx £30.00

    Add a 10m VanDamme 3RCA to 3RCA cable - approx £50.00

    Best regards

    Joe
