    I have two seperate lengths of Component cable (3xcables) that I need to join, the total run is approaching 15m, both lengths are about 7.5m long.

    Looking through the "Beekeepers" excellent cable FAQ, it is apparent that BNC connectors are best, but I haven't got any of these!! So, trying second best, would it be better to simply solder the ends of the two sets of cables together, or use F-Connectors, as these are rated at 75ohms. According to the FAQ Phono terminators aren't anywhere near 75ohms, so would using these, plus a joiner, make an apparent difference to the video image, bearing in mind the length of the cable?!? For info this is to connect my Iscan unit to my Sanyo Z2 projector.

    I know this is bordering on sacrilege, but needs must and I don't have the necessary ££'s to replace them all!!

    Thanks

    Gavin
