I need cables - S-video, composite, etc. Momoprice has lots of choices. Do I get the cheapest, middle price???

Also - for composite, is the yellow cable different from the red?

Thanks, CB

As a professional installer i would say go with the less expensive if you have a regular TV, and/or a non HD cable box. but if your hooking up a $5000 LCD and are paying an extra $20-$30 a month for HD programming use the midgrade cable at the least, ...as for the yellow RCA its no different then the red or white...yellow denotes VIDEO when red/shiteare audio

If you are looking for a great deal on all types of cables, check out showmecables on the web. They are a really knowledgeable company, and they offer all types of cables at great prices.

Monoprice is so inexpensive, I don't mind paying a little more for their better quality stuff. But, Powerman makes a good point on the SD vs HD display.

With Monoprice's prices and quality, they have a lifelong customer in me. I just saved hundreds of $ wiring my theater and rec room by using monoprice's products.

I'd go with something the 24-gauge (24AWG) range from this page:
http://www.monoprice.com/products/su...d=10240&style=

Get the shortest length you can - 6 feet (Part ID 2219) works for most if the STB is just above or below your TV.
