    I will make a trip out to Target, but I'd like to check some Online prices first. I'm looking for:
    SVideo cables: Lengths of 20' & 6'
    Optical (Toslink) Audio Cables: Lengths of 3' & 6'
    Not interested in brand names, obviously, just need the connectivity. THis time I will SAVE the links. [​IMG]
    Thanks.

    Shawn how in the heck did you manage to equate bettercables.com with cheap?
    Richard,
    If you want cheap I would try radioshack.com.

    i agree with kevin -

    save yourself the hassle...go to radio shack.

    i also recommend the AR series from best-buy. i just bought a 6' a/v cable and think it works great. i think it was like 20 bucks.

    I don't think I would worry too much about the 6' S-video, or the opticals, but I would recommend getting a decent 20' s-video. I went the cheap route with a 25' run and had severe ghosting on my projector.

    Thanks for the links/advice guys. As for RShack, I must visit the local one almost weekly. While they have good-very good prices on many items, I find the prices for SVideo & Optical cables to be too high for the variety they sell.
    Some sites I came across:
    http://www.national-tech.com (order placed)
    http://www.svideo.com (order placed)
    Suggested:
    www.ac4l.com (order placed - thanks Shawn)
    www.partsexpress.com (will almost definitely use in future)
    Thanks.
