    I have a question regarding my setup, I have a long svideo run (10m) from my dvd player to my plasma screen. I get some interference on black screens. I have tried 2 different short svideo (1.5 and 2m) leads but its still the same.

    I was thinking of going component, but my screen has BNC component connections on it.

    I really could do with one to try (a short one) before I buy the more expensive 10m component leads to see if it is that.

    Is anyone local to me? Manchester/Warrington area who has a bnc component lead?

    You can buy BNC connectors that attach to the phono (RCA) socket and these work fine. I am afraid I do not know any sellers but most good hi-fi shops will do them

    I plugged my playstation playing a dvd into the screen via svhs last night, no interference at all. I think it is my dvd player thats causing this.

    My dvd player is a USA model, so i am using a 240/120v converter, i think this is where the problem lies. The interference has not been noticable for 3 years on a 32" widescreen TV, but when plugged into a plasma you can tell when you pump up the brightness.

    I think component leads are going to make no difference now.

    Time to buy a new dvd player i think.
