    does anyone know where i can buy the parts
    to make a long s-video cable and phone leads.

    i want to have run from my sky digi box in the living room
    to my bedroom.

    As im buying a plasma tv for the bedroom.
    these it seems do not take RF i/ps.

    so i want to feed the svideo out to a AV amp.
    along with the phono LR leads.

    and then to the plasma.

    the run will be quite long as i live in a bungalow.

    is there anyone that sells ready made long leads.

    i take it the spec of s-video allows for a long run.

    thanks brian

    Would a Video sender not be a better investment?
    I believe maplin have a pair for £40 at the moment.

    Maplin will probably also stock whatever it is you need for cables. (I think I saw a 15m S-vid cable on there, but i don't suppose thats long enough)

    Another suggestion I've seen mentioned before is Cat 5, there is a site you can visit to get all the details but I can't recall the address off hand.

    Lektropacks will make one as long as you like but check with them first as over a very long distance signal may be very attenuated and noisy why a plasma in the bedroom? what do you have in the lounge? or a second box for the bedroom? or have the existing one moved and an RF lead to the TV

    i did a similar thing in our old place, i used a 9 core cable from maplin.used 4 cores for the s-video and 4 more for the left/right phonos, it ended up at just over 12 metres and was absolutley fine.
    and it was all in one neat cable :)
