    Hi,

    I've purchased a specified dedicated length, 3RCA to 3RCA cable from Keene Electronics (Excellent and fast service, by the way).

    I need the cable to connect a DVD player to a projector through the Component (Y,Cb,Cr) terminals.

    I thought no special requirements existed for this kind of cable. However, upon arrival, I noticed that not all 3 cables are the same diameter, one being thicker than the other 2. <br />(My mistake, as this is surelly intended for 1 Video/2 Audio connections.

    Can I still use it or will this be a problem for this kind of connection?

    Txs for any replies.

    HB

    There will be cable experts pulling their hair out on this one. The purists will say not. But have seen bell wire used for video applications and it gave a supurb picture. IMHO if you can send it back do so if not try it.

    I would at he very least use the thickest cable to run the Y / G section. and the thiner to cope with the red and blue.<br />

    You don't say how long the cable is but because it's to a projector I'm guessing it more than 2m which you really sould have a good quality 75ohm cable.

    RCA is an audio connection mr manufacturers. there are no TRUE 75 ohm RCA connectors.
