All capitals is interpreted as shouting...............
sorry didn't mean to shout ,but can't type to save my life.
My post was a bit abrupt,I didn't mean to come across as having a pop at you.
Don't know about DVI at that length, Know VGA is ok with it. This place isn't the busiest at the weekends, someone will b along sooner or later who can give you more info.
All the best,
7.5m is the "DVI standard" maximum length. Some here have had success with 10m - some have had problems & returned 10m cables & replaced them with 7.5m versions.
Pretty much "suck it & see", but only 7.5m is guaranteed - depends very much on the resolution you need to send & the "sending" hardware.
Lindy are probably the best suppliers (in the UK) of DVI cables - I've dealt with them & they come highly recommended.
Been using one of their 7.5m DVI cables with 1366x768 res to a HS10 with no problems.
Good price too.
Looks like I'll have to buy one just to see.
please tell me the benefits of using dvi over componant.i am using a sharp pgm20x and denon 2800mk2.i will be using a pc if i go the dvi way.
I have seen a 20m DVI cable working fine, it is alldown to length vs bandwidth.
beekeeper,any idea where i might get a longer than normal lead?
You can get fibre optic DVI cables from www.pacificcable.com from 33' up to an unbelievable 495'! Mind you, they do cost from $435 to $3250!
