    The plating actually makes very little difference, what does make the difference is the quality of cable, 75 ohm coax conductors for the video and individually shielded. The higher quality cables tend to have gold plated contacts but this is not always a sign of a good cable.

    The silver coloured contact leads are nickel plated not silver, you can get silver plated copper cable, eg the Ixos XHT801-150 but these have gold plated contacts.
