    Trying to make up a cable for a mate.

    I already have a basic 'composite' cable - SCART one end and a single phono on the other. My mate wants an equivalent as his telly is pretty old (no s-vid). Sourcing the SCART plug wasn't a problem neither was the single phono. However trying to find the right type of cable is proving a nightmare. I am assuming I need 75 Ohm Coax but my current cable uses a stranded centre connector and all I can find are cables with Solid Core centre conducter. I want to get braided if possible as solid conducters are prone to breakage. Anyone know a source??, just need about 4 meters

    Cost

    SCART - 99p
    Phono - 99P (Oooh, gold plated for that!!)
    Coax - about a £1 mtr

    Total - about £6 ish

    If you can find me a cable for about the same price then I'll go for it

    Phono - SCART
