Component Sound


Active Member
Sorry if this is a dumb question but do component leads carry audio or only video? I have extended my Xbox 360 component lead so I can also use the xbox in another room, but there is no sound. For my main tv I use an optical lead into an amp. But no sound using only component.
If I do need an opticsl lead, can you get them around 10m long?

Component leads carry video only... so you will need an audio connector.
You can get 10m optical cables... try CPC, Keene or Lektropacks for the more affordable ones.

Component is video only, to get audio you need to use either the optical output or the red/white phono cables.
