    Hi folks,

    What are my best options for connecting a Sky 160+ box to a Screenplay Infocus 5700 on an 8m run?

    Should I go S-Video or Component? And can anyone recommend cables in this length. I don't want to spend the Earth...

    Cheers.

    I know nothing of the 5700, but with my experience on a Sanyo Z2, given S-Video or Component, I'd run a mile away from S-Video. If you have component out from the Sky+ box (I thought these were RGB only?) then Component cable any day of the week. Maplin do a good 10M component cable for £30 (think it was on offer for £20 a couple of weeks ago - check their webbie)

    The 'best' option is going to depend upon the Input options on your Projector and what other sources/signals you want to run.

    If you have a SCART input (I think possibly via an adapter) then a custom RGB only SCART cable may be your best option - at a guess I'd say around £100.00 for a VanDamme cable on five core 75 ohm Red Series cable.

    If the 'supplied' SCART adapter is designed to work with an HD15 (VGA) input the custom cable can be manufactured as SCART to HD15 and do away with the adapter.

    Best regards

    Joe
