    Hi all :)

    Just have a quick question:
    Im thinking in buying a plasma (Panasonic Hi-def Commercial version),
    and there are 2 types of component video boards available:
    with regular RCA plugs and one with BNC plugs on it.
    So: is there any difference in video quality when using BNC/RCA
    plugs (with quality cables, Nordost or similar), since i will connect
    a progressive DVD player with RCA plugs and would have to use a hybrid cable (RCA plugs in one end and BNC on the other).
    Just wondering :confused:

    Thanks in advance.

    ;)

    RCA to BNC is marginally better than RCA to RCA. BNCs all round is the best. This is in general but usually very reliable guide, as I haven't seen the new pannies

    The main reason i ask this is because i already have a quality component cable with RCA plugs (Audioquest Cinemaquest YIQ-2) and the plasma supplier just have in stock the BNC plugs board for the moment.
    So maybe a RCA-->BNC cable its an option but for the moment im not certain if its the right move.
    The BNC is maiginally better? in picture quality? or just in connectivity (its a better plug that remains in place after atached) since with RCA plugs sometimes with time they get a little loose.
