    Have a look at this thread for a VGA cable I've just ordered a 10m from Lindy on recommendation of a couple of members here. Price £38.50 + either £1.99 2nd class post or £6.99 Special delivery. I ordered mine at 4:15 pm today and it shipped in under an hour :eek:

    If you're interested i may have a 10m S-Video cable for sale after the weekend. Its a TechLink Professional S-VHS Plug to S-VHS Plug available from www.beyondhifi.net

    As for Component, dunno mate ;)

    Try The media factory (www.tmfsolutions.co.uk) ask for Joe,
    They have Van Damme cables, I got a red, green and blue cable
    for 14.14 each. (including vat + P & P)
    You will need to send them a cheque but they are great cables.
    I also baught a composite and SVHS cable from here.
    A full set of cables bar VGA (use lindy) cost me 77.69 including P&P and VAT.

    Ask yourself if you really need them though. I only baught them as once I install the PJ I don't want to start lifting floorboards in case I get another source. You probably would be OK with a VGA cable only if you can route your gear through a PC or a proV thingie.

    would rather route all cables at once to cover all bases.

    Oh and has 10m been long enough for everyone ?

    Yep, VanDamne component and svideo from Joe and VGA from Lindy worked for me.

    actually, of the 50 odd panny owners on this forum, I bet many have gone the same way, that's a lot of purchaser power!
