Where can I get a LONG (75') composite cable?

I want to get my hands on a real long Y/R/W composite cable... I can't seem to locate on anywhere...

I want to run my "picture" to a TV in another room... need a 75 foot cord... or possibly even a 100 foot cord...

I checked Parts Express and they didn't seem to help at all... I don't know where else to look...

You may have to make one out of 75 ohm coax. Not a big deal and probably much more economical.

I agree with the idea of making your own. You can also go to www.markertek.com and have them make one in just about any length, although it might be easier to call them. The number is (800)522-2025.

Go to Radio Shack, and buy 75-100 feet of RG6 Coaxial along with either composite (RCA phono) screw on connections, or crimp on versions if you don't mind cutting and installing your own ends.

This will be your cheapest solution and should provide decent results.

ditto. this is the cheapest solution, and the quality is the same, IMO.
