Using std coax as component video cables


Unregistered guest
Standard coax cables are 75 Ohm.. so what if I just slap on rca adapters on them and use them as component video cables? Will they work pretty good?

I have been using RadioShacks gold series composite a/v cables (mentions nothing about its impendence) as my component video cables and they seem to work fine.. but I have nothing to compare it to.

Yeah, no problem. I am using these for an HT projector and I am running pretty long cables (45ft). Quality is very good.

I have the same idea. I think I should see videos but not sure how good or bad it will be.

I am looking for 6-wire-SACD & DVDA cables. An electronics store guy told me to use three bundles of RCA composite digital cables. SO the 3 white and 3 red wires can do the 6 wire analog cables for SACD and DVDA. The other 3 yellow video wires can be used as component. Has anybody tried this stuff. Comparision results are important. Saving money is one thing and trying this stuff can bring some hobby pleasure as well.
