    Pretty much as the title says really - Im going to be buying a DVI enabled player in the upcoming week and need a 10m DVI cable that will work with the Z2.

    Having done a few searches I believe these work but wouldn't mind some further info:

    Cobaltcables 10m DVI
    Profigold PGM 1415 10m DVI

    Anyone know of or use any others?
    Cheers

    I bought a 12m dvi-d cable from cablesolutions in the states. It works a treat from my HTPC to a sony hs20. No sparklies. They do a range of sizes up to 15metres.

    They also trade on ebay.Which is where I found them after losing out on a 10m bettercable one ( production meetings happen at the most inconsiderate times)

    total price including shipping was $177 dollars plus 30quid on top for tax and duty

    Cheers for the responses both of you. I notice you are using a Sony PJ Mr D but what do you have PJTX100 - the Hitachi by any chance or do you have a z2?

    Th reason i ask is that a lot of people have long DVI cable runs but are not using the z2 projector. It seems to be more fussy than most and I'm after definite cables that work.

    Anyone else with a 10m DVI with a Z2?

    The BetterCables Display Magic II work at 8m, 12m and 15m with the Z2; though its a three way thing - the results you get may not be the same as the next person if your source is not the same and your not outputting the same signal type.

    Ensure any long DVI cables you purchase are on Sale or Return in case you have issues.

    See http://www.bettercables.com

    Best regards

    Cheers Joe, Im looking ot buy either the new samsung 950, more tempted by the Oppo from the states as I want it for dvd only or possibly the phillips 9000 as its good with music but still tempted to go dedicated cd and dvd player route resulting in purchase of Oppo or cheaper Samsung.

    With any of these players I would be looking to output at 720p to keep it native with the z2.

    Can anyone confirm which 10m runs work with any of the above players, particularly the samsung and Oppo?

    Thanks all, helping loads.

    The Lindy Premium is advertised as a Hi-Res DVI cable. If you get sparklies they'll do a refund. I ended up buying a 9m Bettercables which delivers a great picture up to 1080i. This is impressive as nearly half of its run is next to a socket ring main so its shielding is up to scratch too.

    Ok so the bettercables 9m DVI works fine between an Oppo dvd player and Sanyo Z2 incase anyone was interested. No sparklies, just a great picture.
