    I've just bought a JS rgb - s video converter and want to connect my Sky box to my projector but will need a 10m cable. Scart-s video would be ideal but s-vid connectors on either end would do as I think I've got a converter somewhere. I'm looking for a fairly good cable but not too chunky as it needs to run under carpet in places. I know Chord do custom made ones but I haven't found prices anywhere so if anyone has any suggestions I'd be grateful.

    I bought this 10 meter lead from Maplins, for hooking up $ky to a Panasonic 300 in readiness for Euro2004 :) The cable is nice and flexible so you will be able to run it almost anywhere without any problems, and both cable and connectors seem well made.
    The picture is also very good (especially the movie and music channels) taking into account some of crappy bit rates employed by Sky.

    VanDamme and BetterCables are the main Video cable brands and both do high quality S-Video over 10m - the VanDamme is 7.0mm Diameter so should run beside a carpet gripper pretty well.

    Best regards

    The Profigold PGV6609 is the same price as the Maplin lead and its a far better cable.

    Two points that make it better are the cast metal connectors provide better shielding around the connector and the Interference absorbing ferrites each end. You'll also find the cable materials are specified eg the Cellular PE insulation etc. What hi-fi? gave the Profigold PGV660x range a 5 star rating.
