Is there a difference between Y/Pb/Pr cables and Y/Cb/Cr cables? I bought a set of component cables and they are Y/Cb/Cr. I used them to connect a Dish Network receiver to an hdtv and everything looks fine. In searching the forum I found that Y/Cb/Cr inputs are for 480i and don't do 480p,720p, or 1081i. Thanks.
In the U.S., Y/Cb/Cr designations are almost always misprints. Y/Cb/Cr is a digital method not normally used here. My Toshiba SD-5109 DVD player labels the interlaced outputs Y/Pb/Pr and the progressive Y/Cb/Cr for example. It's just an error as the progressive outputs are indeed Y/Pb/Pr analog.
Make that, "may not be the correct impedence". In short lengths, impedence isn't so important though and some Y/R/W cable sets are 75 Ohm anyway. If you have a set already, try it as it may work fine.
