    What about snipping the existing ones and patching with standard wire? Or should I just get my coat?

    Wireworld is much better quality cable, but you could buy a cheaper DVI lead and their control cable. 12m control lead is about £100, lindy 10m DVI is £45. Cheaper for shorter runs

    If you don't need the full 10m then Sharps cables for their Aquos tellies work just the same, and there is a 7m kit for about £130 odd iirc.

    Hi,

    Got my PDP-435XDE installed & wall mounted on 25Nov, only to find the cable between screen & receiver is ridiculously short length. It's only purpose is if you want the receiver right below the screen. As my screen is above a fireplace this was never going to happen. Wife is not happy.
    Priced Pioneer's 10m cable and is a laughable £230. Spoke to the hifi store who supplied screen and they have recommend & tested (and I have subsequently ordered) a 7 metre alternative...the Sharp AN07SC1/2. Although still relatively expensive at £120, it far cheaper than being fleeced by Pioneer.

    The sharp cable works the same cos it is, sharp make the media box. Therefore it's perfectly OK to use, funny it should be 7m, just like Pioneers 433 lead?

    Just a quick note re the Pioneer PDA-H03 10m cable - Pioneer UK don't set retail prices so cant 'fleece' anyone on cables or any other piece of kit.

    Most places supply the 10m cable for just under £200 inc postage.

    Best regards

    Joe

    PS Odd your supplier didn't question the length of the 'supplied' cable if you indicated you were wall mounting the 'screen' - and anything longer than the supplied 3m cable and Pioneer would get accused of supplying a 'ridiculously' long cable for those looking for a 'neat' solution and not wall mounting :)

    Gizlaroc, the data part I have never seen the connector anywhere else, it appears to be Sharp proprietary. They made the 1st gen media boxes, might still be doing the latest ones, I'm not sure. And Joe, the trade on the 10m cable doesn't allow much room for manoevre, does it. And how come the 7m cable from Sharp is 1/2 the price of a 10m from Pioneer. You'd be hard pressed to tell them apart coiled up in your hand. And consider that the DVI part is pretty standard, possibly not up to Lindy quality in fact. Certainly it's not the retailers having a party on this one.

    Hello all

    MAW - I guess Sharp sell more kit than Pioneer; though I'm pretty sure Pioneer now do the Media Receivers 'in-house' and not sub them out to Sharp.

    Gizlaroc - the MDR20 (or MDR26) DFP connector are available; though I've never seen them sold in quantities of one (or two).

    Best regards

    Joe
