    I need to connect my pc to my tv, but they are about 10m apart. All i need is a standard video cable (not component). Can you get ones this long?
    If not, can i daisy chain a few?

    Thanx.

    CPC do 10m video cables. I don't have the catalogue at the moment though and their website isn't the best for browsing.

    You could use a wirless sender, try maplin website or lektropacks for cables. Are you after S-vid or composite?

    dragon, lynx, thanks very much for that, i really appreciate it.

    Just to confirm, that is a composite yellow video cable?
    Also, is this website reliable to order from ie. delivery times, credit card security etc.?

    No it's not yellow, is that neccessary ? ( it's a sort of titaniun colour on this one ).
    The company is fairly well regarded.You will have to open an account though ( it won't be a problem, just phone up and explain you only want to order a single item and pay by switch).

    well the colour doesn't actually matter to me, i just thought that all composite video cables were yellow, because all the ones supllied with my equipment were, and the video connector on my tv is yellow, but maybe it doesn't matter.


    I'll see if Currys have anything and if not i'll get it from this site.

    Once again thanx for all your help.

    Currys!!!!!! Lektropacks if you dont want to open an account or maplin if you dont want to order online but currys!!!!! Dont do it!
    PS yellow indicates what the socket is for but the cable is exactly the same as red and white ones.
