    component cable differences?

    ok, i searched the forums earlier today and found out that component cables would actually make a difference on a standard tube tv. So I was wondering. Nintendo sells their component cables for $35, but i found some other ones that are only $20. So is there a difference of quality between any of the component cables out there, or are they all the same?

    In terms of picture quality, it doesn't make a difference. A wire is a wire. The difference between low end cables and high end (like moster cable) is the connection points and the durability of the wire. A moster cable will have better contact, but you probably will not notice a difference. Also, high end wires have a shield around them (inside the rubber casing) to prevent interference from other sources. Cheap cables might not have this or it might be extremely fragile. Again, will you notice a difference? Probably not. Besides, even if the shield is more fragile, it's not like you'd be moving it all the time, like a DJ would be moving cables all the time. Although, you can probably bet that Nintendo cables will be of excellent quality.

    I don't think non-HD tv's have a component input...

    I wouldn't have thought they had anything to do with it, but I have heard that some american cables don't work with English tv's.

    That's what I thought, but I don't know for sure.

    It's logical, but I've heard problems.
