    Just got my Sharp 26" LCD at last!

    Picked it up from JL this morning.

    I notice it says it has a DVI-I .. this means it is analogue.

    Does it accept DVI-D .. Digital as well?

    As I want to get a 15m DVI cable.

    Also can someone recommend some GOOD quality ones.

    I don't want cheap and nasty.

    Thanks,

    Ho yin :thumbsup:

    DVI-I means that the DVI port accepts both Analodue and Digital.

    Take a look at Lindy cables.

    You may be pushing 15m for DVI. Its within the capabilities of HDMI but you are probably exceeding the reliable distance for DVI. Im not sure what the case is if you are driving it from an HDMI source but from my memory, you will get the benefit of HDMI is you do the conversion at the display end - ie. you keep it as HDMI as long as possible. In this case, you need an HDMI->DVI-D cable. A good indication is whether a cable is made to this length.

    I would highly recommend purchasing from a dealer who will give you your money back if it does not work. Joe Fernand who frequents the plasma forum would beable to offer good advice and backup.

    Thanks,

    Spoken to Joe, getting a 12m cable from him DVI-D to DVI-D

    Fingers crossed it is ok and works.

    I've bought a load of stuff today, wall mounting bracket, new Geforce 6600GT graphics card and a Nebula DVB card.

    Can't wait .. so far the PQ is very good! Tried feeding it with Freeview and analogue stolen off a Telewest cable broadband line.

    So far very very very good :)

    Been comparing it to my Sony 28" CRT as well ..

    Not doing too badly!

    :thumbsup:
