GAME component lead no good for me ...

d'oh, the audio inputs on my amp are a mile away from the video inputs in the back of my panny 7 :(

The GAME lead will only allow a maximum separation of about a foot.

I can either get some audio lead extenders (bit more dosh) or get another component lead that has more scope for separation between the audio and video feed inputs.

Anyone know if any of the other component leads will give me more - or am I best off just extending the audio feeds?

The official ones are short as well. Its not expensive for a connector and extension phono cables though.

Go to maplin.co.uk and find yourself a phono extension lead. I ordered mine on Sat night and it should be delivered today!! It cost me around £7 inc delivery.
Hope this helps:smashin:

I got mine for £3 delivered from Ebay..

Maplin, Ebay or any reasonable place will have extension leads pretty cheap

From what I have seen, most of the Component cables don't have very long audio leads.

Can you not just connect the audio cables to the plasma, then the plasma's audio out to the amp? That's what I've done so that whatever is shown on the TV can be heard through the amp. I can't hear any drop in audio quality doing it this way either.

I picked up a Phono Coupler for 75pence and just used some existing leads I had in a draw - It does the job fine on my Official Lead :)

Yup, I did this with mine.....

Just got the lead from Game yesterday and can see absolutely no improvement over the standard composite lead, I changed the Wii output to 480p too... btw, I'm using a Sony 40W2000....

Should there be any difference in quality between the Game lead and the official one?

I got mine from the indoor market in Cardiff, I've noticed they're rather cheap on eBay - Drop me a PM if you want me to order one off eBay for about £1-60

Dude,

Just get a phono extension lead. picked a 3 meter lead up from the market for £1.60 and works a treat. Same issue as you. PW7 on the wall Amp is on the floor.

Works fine. Your really notice the difference in the output of the picture aswell - :thumbsup:
