    For the past month or so, I've been trying to get my hands on a VGA HDDB15 female-to-female adapter from a range of online retailers but everything seems to be coming up short. It's doing my head in...

    Any advice on where I might be able to buy one from in Central London?

    Thanks

    Maplins on Tottenham Court Road would be my first choice.

    Isn't there a micro anvika store somewhere around Tottenham Court Road? I remember hunting about there some time ago looking for cables. It possibly could have been Maplins. Terrible memory. :p

    I think there are 3 Micro Anvika stores on Tottenham Court Road. But Maplin would be the best place for cables and components.

    BV, I have a vga switch box I have zero use for, it has all female ports so you could use it to turn a m-f cable into a f-f, I'd be happy to mail it to you as I have zero use for it as I'm all ADC/DVI these days.

    edit: it's a mechanical switch, no power required so it's like a big ugly adapter.
