    I didnt realise these were so rare and expensive ! I might have one, but cant remember if it was the official Ninty one or not. If it wasnt apparently its just normal composite. I may have got it when I imported my Orange GC from Japan. I will check when I get home tonight.
    I take it your GC has the digital AV output?

    If i do have it, I will be looking for £110 inc del, unless your near Canary Wharf or Sidcup which seems £50 less than other outlets.

    A few noteworthy things about the GC and component cable:

    • You will need an older GameCube console equipped with a digital A/V output port (model DOL-001) - Nintendo took this port AWAY for models released after DOL-001.
      • Although PAL editions of the DOL-001 hardware were produced, the games themselves only support PAL (576i) or PAL60 (480i). This means you need NTSC games to see the actual differences.
    • You might want to see if the games you own even support progressive scan - check this list here:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Nintendo_GameCube_games_...

    • You need to activate the progressive scan mode for the first time by holding the "B" button when you power up the console. After enabling it you should not have to do this again. Most games will indicate upon start up that progressive scan mode is enabled, or will actually have "YES" or "NO" to select progressive scan.

    Thanks for the informative reply with regards to games and ports,

    Yeah, I also had no idea until late last week of how rare they were, silly Nintendo for not producing a lot of them, its not vital I have one just more of a 'would like' to have one and seeing as they have been on eBay for an average buy it now price of £100-£120 and bidding wars not exceeding £100 I am only really looking to spend around £80 for one.

    Thanks

    Would it not just be cheaper to buy a Wii (if you don't have one) and a component cable for it?

    That sounds great if you still have the cable, I work in Old Street so could pop down after work one day with the £80.

    Bazry, I'm a purist, it would be cheaper to pick up an old Wii but mheh, I like to play games on there native console :p

    If Mr LightYear doesn't have any luck finding his lead I've got a boxed one I'm willing to part with - I also have two Monster GameCube cables should you be interested:
    GCGL300 SV-10 (10' S-Video / Stereo)
    GLS250 (6' S-Video / Composite / Stereo)
    (I used the monster leads as you'll still need a 'standard' cable alongside the component for the audio output). I could probably part with these for less than the $149 someone's asking on amazon.com!
