Hello and thanks again,

I am having trouble locating a long enough RCA Composite Video Cable
(the yellow one of the typical composite set: Rd, Wht, Ylw)

Yes, I know S-Video, Component or HDTV would all be better for Video, but my hardware leaves me know other option then RCA Composite Video...

I need a 50ft length, and can't find one. I found female to female connectors that would allow me to splice several together but I would rather have one continues length.

Here is my question: I also saw RCA adapters that convert the typical RG6 coax screw on ends to RCA connectors. I have a bunch of RG6 coax cable.

Would this be as good as an off the shelf, pre-made 50ft Audio Component cable?

I can't find a clear answer on the web...so I am putting this up for comments from the experienced "experts"

After much reading and searcing it turns out that most Video cable is coax cable. I ended getting 50ft RG59 Coax, terminated and used F to RCA adapters. Worked great, cost me $8 for the RG59 cable and $2ea for the adapters.

My system is finished
Complete Home Theater for under $500
