I've never posted in this seection before. Glad to find it here! I did a quick search and I don't think I found anything on this. I just bought as plasma TV. I have not recieved it yet, but I am preparing for it. One thing I will do in the interum after I get it set up is connect it to my older DVD player that has component video out. I don't have any component cables now so I was curious if they are all created equally. I will eventually upgrade to a newer player that has HDMI output, for now I'm just going to get what I have going. Seems like Monster cable might be too pricy verses others yet provide similar video quality? Could I just use regular cables with RCA jacks, assuming the guage of the cable is reasonable? Just wanted to get up to speed. Thanks!
