    Hi Everyone,
    Hope all is well. I will be purchasing this Phillips 30" TV I know cables are very important and I was hoping you all could give me some good advice on some component cables for both DVD and HDTV. I am on a very tight budget. Are there any good cables for under 50 bucks a set. Are Blue Jeans Cables any good?

    Blue Jeans, which features Belden and Canare cables, are quite good. If your length requirements are modest, a few meters, then you could also use a wide variety of component cables such as these http://www.knukonceptz.com/productMa...Home%20Theater and realize some savings. The differences in signal strength (amount of attenuation loss) is neglible between something like RG6 or RG59 or the Knu's. A host of choices are out there to confuse you [​IMG]

    For a fraction of the cost of boutique or semi-boutique brands you can buy THESE and for TV screen as small as yours (compared to most HDTV RPTV's people are getting these days), you probably won't notice a bit of difference between a boutique and these.

    Save money and invest in new DVD's or something.
