    Just came back from Radio Shack. RS now has a new series of cable under the name of Digital Series. They come in lengths of 3ft, 6ft, or 12ft, and orange in color. On the packaging, it says "Double-shielded 75-ohm digital audio cable". Just wondering if I can use these as component video cables? As I understand it, as long as the cables are 75-ohm, then it's OK to use as component video cables, right?

    I haven't seen those cables myself, but just wanted to note that standard RG6 is double shielded, foil shield and the braided shield.
