I got a question


Umm are the component cables same as the composite cables? Say if I used a composite cable with video, L audio and R audio as a component video cable would it be the same quality? If not what's the difference?

They are identical and interchangable.

There are arguments that coaxial is 75ohms while audio composite may just be 50ohms. 50 ohms is normally OK for sounds but insufficient for picture quality. I haven't read any technical document about this comparison. Has anyone read one?

Gabriel is absolutely right. Composite video cables are NOT interchangeable w/ Component Video cables.
