    Have just ordered new scarts to connect dvd/sky to JS vga Box. Was wondering if anyone can recommend a good VGA lead to connect from this to my PWD6????

    Bettercables Silver Serpent is the one that I am recommending.

    I got sent a bog standard cable from Avsales with my PW7, but part of the deal was a hand made Van damme VGA cable.

    So i used the bog standard one for a week then switched over once avsales had posted out the correct cable...........................couldn't notice any diff to my eyes.....................quite expensive too.

    But might have always wondered if i could get better PQ if i'd used the standard.

    Cheers,Tam

    I've never been convinced that expensive cables are worth the money over short distances...for longer lengths then they can show their value...that said I have bought decent cables throughout just to be sure.

    I doubt you'll find better than the Bettercables Silver Serpent range but it could cost as much as your converter did...if not more...Van Damme are also good and a fair bit cheaper to boot.

    Cheers, Lee

    I have an unwanted brand new 1 metre Van Damme VGA to VGA cable purchased from av-sales which I can sell you in the clasifieds if you're interested? Either way, personally I always buy "medium" quality cables not the cheapo ones, say around £50 per cable. In my experience, not convinced the premium ones really make any difference and certainly not enough to justify the extra cost.
