    Guys,

    A couple of questions for you.

    * I'm going to mount my PJ on the ceiling and need a source of cheap component video cables (10m-20m). Can anyone suggest a good place.

    * What's the maximum cable length you can have on component cables given that you would be using reasonable quality cables.

    Cheers

    I looked long and hard at component leads, lengths, quality etc.

    I was on the verge of having Gordon (hes well known on here but cant remember his company, in Scoland somewhere) make me some up for about £110.

    In the end I bought some from Lektrapacs for about £35 in postage.

    I am happy with them and certainly can't complain about the quality.

    Would the ones at £110 have been better?? Who knows.

    The other factor was time. I got them from lektrpacs in a day or so, whereas gordon wanted a couple of weeks ( he was near the end of his reel.)

    I'm happy with my long and cheap S-Video cable from Lindy

    Look up multimeda/audio/video or try here

    Around 20 quid for 15m.

    Cheers,
    Cal.

    Also try www.vdctrading.co.uk

    No personal experience of the company but the cables are Van Damme 75ohm (though the phono maynot be!) and appear to be a good price.
