    CT100 is a 75ohm coaxial cable. It'll be fine for "A" but I'm not so sure about "B" or "C" as audio cables have a different resistance level normally lower than 50ohm (don't quote me on that). It does'nt mean it won't work though.

    Thanks for the reply. I have found some better cable RG6/U digital video cable 1694A made by Belden. Maybe this will do the job?

    Hmmm....at the end of the day if its video cable its probably not the best choice for audio cables.

    If you can try a bit though, give it a shot.

    I know Maplin do some very good A/V cable (I've used it myself) but its £2 a metre.
