    I'm still getting my projector room sorted. One of the hold-ups is a
    component lead from the DVD (phono) to the projector (HD15 D-type).

    I plan to cut a made-up phono lead in half and solder it to a D-type
    plug. The phono lead is here:

    The only thing that concerns me is that this lead isn't specifically
    75 ohms, but I doubt that many SCART or VGA leads are either.

    Can anyone see a problem?

    It's virtually impossible to get a true 75-ohm phono connector...

    What you're after is a VGA breakout cable. For 5M ( :confused: ) you'll need to go higher in £'s for a good quality cable. Sometimes you get RGBHV phonos so just use three of them at the DVD end.

    Try the one you note and see if it's any good - it's under a tenner so what have you to lose, apart from a tenner.
