    Can anyone recomend a decent component lead to go between my DVD player and Toshiba 46WH08B?

    Am I right in thinking its just a standard 3 phono to 3 phone lead connection?

    Thanks in advance

    RCA to RCA, just make sure it is 75 Ohm coax and that is all you need, less than £10 for all three should do it! (Maplin has what you need).

    My toshiba 210 came with a cheap looking 3 way connector that works fine as a component lead. Didn't yours come with something similar?(I don't think it was intended to be used as a component connection but it does the job)

    Thanks for the reply's

    Ken,
    My DVD player is a region 1 import so I didn't get any leads.

    Done an internet search and Monster do a component lead but can't find any UK stockists.
    In HCC magazine they have recommended using component connection when possible but none of the main stream cable manufactures (Qed, Ixos, etc) seam to have these.
