    Need a cheap VGA to component video cable ?

    Ebuyer.com do a "Belkin Pro Series High Performance 5 BNC Monitor Cable 1.8m" for just over £10 + VAT (Quickfind Code: 28640). This has 5 BNC plugs for the component outputs, usually for connection to expensive component VGA screens. However, you can either cut the BNC's off and solder some RCA phono jacks, or buy some BNC<>phono adaptors from Maplin Electronics. I've seen these cables selling for over £80 elsewhere. I've tried this to connect a DVD player with component output to a Benq TV projector, and it works fine :thumbsup:

    One of these going the opposite way might help my Philips 9986 LCD screen that philips can't be bothered supporting!!
