    Hi,

    I'm building myself a VGA cable to go from a PC to the VGA input on an AE900 Panny Projector. The Projector is approx 8m away. I have used Van Damme 75 Ohm Plasma Grade Video Cable for the component connection and have enough cable remaining for the RGB outputs in the VGA connection.

    My question is, do I need to also use Video Coax for the Horizontal and Vertical Sync (ie 2 more cables, of which I don't have enough :-( ) or can I get away with a non coax data type connection because I don't think the sync is an analogue signal ?

    Many Thanks,

    Richard.
