    You can't. The GC component cable has some custom chip in it, so there are no 3rd party cables that I know of. I know Monster won't make them because the cost of reverse engineering the chip would make the cable cost twice as much as the Xbox/PS2 cables.

    I would suggest some sort of extension cable, I guess.

    I really think you're incorrect. It's not shown on Monster's site, and I've never seen one in a store or anything. Plus the info above came from a friend who works at Monster.

    Where did you see one?

    My apologies, I could have sworn I saw it somewhere online. I see now the only place to get one is thru Nintendo(which I ordered tonight)
