    I am after a Component Video cable to connect Sky HD to my Panny 50PX60. In the past I have used, and am a fan of QED and Ixos cables, however I am on a tight budget of around £20.

    Can anyone recommend some decent cables at this price?

    I have found these:

    This seems like a good one and it’s close to budget: Qed Qunex P-CV1 Component video cable - From £21.50 - HiFiCables.co.uk
    [​IMG]Ixos XHV204 Componant Video I/C
    Ixos XHV704 Component Cable - From £34.21 - Hi-fi Cables Direct Ltd (a bit over budget TBH)

    Also will I see much difference in PQ between using one of these cheaper cable compared to HDMI?


    TIA.

    Tech+Link are an excellent cheaper alternative. I have one spare if you want it - over in the classifieds.

    Do you have a link as I couldn't find it?

    How does it compare to the QED cable I've listed 1st?
