    I've just become the proud owner of a new telly and DVD player which allows me to connect the two together via component with progressive scan.

    Before I rush out and buy the necessary cable, I do have several sets of Cambridge Audio "Pacific" interconnects from my old stereo system, seen here

    I've tried them and they seem to work but not having had anything of this quality before, I wouldn't know if I was missing something or not.

    Will these do the job or should I buy specific cables.

    Thank you

    IIRC audio cables are 50 ohms and video cables should be 75 ohms.

    If you have a mismatch in impedance you could cause signal reflections which will degrade the picture quality.

    ..... but in practice you won't see any difference in a short cable :)
