Here is a 10 foot VGA cable. That may be a little short but it gives you and idea.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16812119038

[edit] ok scratch this one. 01001010's choice is a better deal.

Is that a 1/8" plug for audio on the HDTV or RCA?

The three jacks below the S-video on the left are RCA jacks.
The yellow is composite video, and red and white are right and left audio.

It's 5 feet longer than the one I quoted.

Just use a standard 3.5mm cable to connect audio.

Monoprice.com buys their products in bulk. Because of this, they're able to offer a lower price than most retailers.

You could always order online. It's usually cheaper and easier.

yea but I don't wanta pay shipping $$ its more expensive than the cables themselves. Or is it worth it buying online cause in the store the cables cost more than 5$??? each

quick question if i were to order is there any reason as to why the 15ft cable is better than this 10ft cable? besides the extra 5 feet you get.
