Are the Supplied RF cables with DVD Recorders any good?

Got a new Panasonic DMR-EX75 which comes supplied with 3 RF cables and in the manual it states use these ones only as they prevent interference.

I was going to get shielded and higher quality RF leads as im replacing all my old scart cables, just wondering if I should just use the supplied ones that came from Panasonic.

neojapsz,
The coax cable most people use for Analogue TV is usually single shielded. Digital signals through a coax need to be double shielded as they are more prone to interference.
I'm assuming the leads provided with your Panasonic will be double insulated and should be fine as they will only be short lengths.
Try checking out the "Cables & Interconnects" forum and do a search.

You can't do any harm ... except needlessly to your wallet.

Thousands use those supplied leads without problems. Don't fall for it.
