    Hi,

    I recently made a Component to VGA lead. I used an Ethernet lead (Foil Shielded), and some high quality gold plated RCA connectors.

    The lead works fine, except when I watch movies that have fast paced, dark action scenes in them (or with smoke). I get a ghosting. This doesnt happen with out door well lit action scenes. I have tested my projector using a VGA to VGA RGB cable and no problems.

    Should I retry using digital coxial thats silver plated? Also what is the difference in ohms rate mean? And one cable I looked at mentioned the mhz rating (300mhz).

    Also could the problems Im having, have anything to do with that the DVD's I try are all standard def dvds? not Hi-def?

    As a novice, any tips would be greatly appriecated.

    Cheers

    Carl :)

    Its already here :) - have a look further down the page.

    carlosbrunos - I think you need to do a lot more homework on video cable technology and theory and search out a few of the DIY cable sites; or order a high quality BetterCables HD15(VGA) to 3RCA cable from the Power Buy section :)

    Best regards

    Joe

    Hi Joe,

    I know that the Ethernet wasnt ideal. It was just a test after seeing a pro installation company do it. I thought of using a silver coated coxial as this will then utilise the skimming idea (were data skims in the silver which has less resistance, instead of through the cooper core.)

    Please any explanantion of ohms & the MHZ would be really useful.

    Cheers
