    I know this has been asked before but does anyone know where I can get a 10m DVI cable and more importantly will it pass the necessary bandwith for a WXGA pj.:confused:

    I think 10M is a bit long for DVI, you would need some sort of repeater for that. 5M is about the limit, for WXGA you'll need a dual DVI cable. I have a 5M dual DVI cable gathering dust if you are interested.

    Hi Jeff,

    Thanks but 5m wont be long enough, its not that i have a need for it yet but while i am running cables (got floors up and chasing walls) I thought i would try and future proof my installation as much as posssible. ( I've already run composite, svhs, component, vga). Is there an ything else i should consider.
