Hi,

I am wondering if it is safe to use one of the plugs on an old Supra component cable (either the green, blue or red one) to connect my Bluray player's digital audio output connection to my receiver's coax input? Is this ok to do without damaging anything?

Perhaps you think the question a bit silly and I don't know what I could possibly damage, but I guess I'm better safe than sorry smile.gif

I just got a new projector, but I don't have an HDMI cable apart from a very short one, so I wanted to move my Bluray player closer to the projector, but then I need a long cable to my receiver to get audio too smile.gif

Yes, it's fine. You won't damage anything.

A component cable is just three composite video cables joined together and color coded. A composite cable can be used for digital coax (and in fact only differ by the color, if any.) So you can use it with no problems.

Don't believe everything on the Interwebz! A duck's quack DOES echo!

Yep, just a piece of coaxial cable with RCA connectors on the ends. It doesn't care what you use it for.

CIAO!
