When I put in some laminate floors last year, I put two 25 ft Monster 3 video cables (component and S-video) under the borders in prep for some HT purchases (TV on different wall than audio rack). After a long wait, I just bought a Mits 55908 RPTV and an Onkyo 989 receiver. Now I'm thinking I might want the convenience of using the video switching (40 MHz) on my receiver. If I do this, should I just buy a 1m Monster component cable or will I notice the difference for this setup if I buy the Bettercable's Silver Serpentine cable? For the VCR, I'm thinking of just using one of the cheap, short S-video cables I already have for now (a mistake, or will it hardly matter for watching VHS?). Am I being foolish for wasting the $100 I already sunk in the Monster 3 25ft S-video cable and for paying MORE money for a 1m cable just to have the convenience of video switching?
