    Thanks to all the great posts from members of this forum, I feel more confident about making my own cables. Just one question though.

    My projector (PLV-70) has both RCA and BNC inputs for component video. However, I believe the B&K ref 50 that I have on order only has RCA. So...can or should I use RCA at one end and BNC at the other? Or should I K.I.S.S. and use RCA at both ends?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    There's no problem at all using a cable with RCA on one end and BNC on the other.

    Of course running high frequency video through a audio pre/pro is something else. I prefer to use a separate switcher and keep the video signals well away from the audio ones.......
