    looking at prices for this i can get a 10m hdmi to dvi cable for £90 but can get a hdmi to hdmi and a hdmi to dvi conveterfor £60 would the latter make the pic any worse or should i just get the hdmi to dvi cable and stop messing around?

    The converters have no impact on PQ from what I have seen, but are the two cables of equal quality? There are good, and bad, DVI and HDMI cables out there.

    Better to purchase a single piece cable HDMI2DVI now and if required you can add in a converter at a later date - you can convert DVI to HDMI just as easily as HDMI to DVI.

    See http://www.hdmiplanet.com/adapters.html

    Ensure any long HDMI to DVI cable you purchase is on sale or return - especially so when its DVI at the receive end; not all cables are created equal and depending on what signal your trying to send over 10m you can get varied results.

    If I understand your figures your saying you can get a 10m HDMI cable + an adapter for a total figure of £60.00 - that's a mighty cheap cable.

    Best regards

    Joe
