    Hi folks

    I need to run a VGA cable to my PW7 via a round piece of conduit that is around 2cm in diameter. Most standard VGA cables are too big to fit through.

    Can anyone point me in the direction of either (a) a cable that has a smaller connector on the end, or (b) a cable that you can 'break apart' to feed it (eg. like this, but which I can source in the UK)

    Thanks in advance

    I would beware a detachable cable like that, could pull apart within the wall and take ages to fish out and re-lay!! Is this conduit already buried? If so I think you're only choice is going to be to solder the end on on-site. Or, go to the expense of using CAT5 sender/recievers. CAT5 will fit down the conduit, but then you will need to hide the receiver somewhere behind the plasma.

    The conduit isn't hidden in the wall, Liam (check the PW7 link in my sig). Its just a couple of hollow poles that I use to make the cabling look tidier, so a detachable cable won't be a problem.

    In that case run 10x20mm trunking (which you can pop apart to put the cable in) and finish with B&Q silver radiator pipe cover. Looks just the same as what you've got there!!!
