    Apologies if this question has been answered elsewhere.

    I'm looking for the best way to connect the Z2 to a PC.

    The distance is around 7 - 10 m

    Currently my PC only has a VGA card but looking to future proof.

    Should i go for

    (a) DVI-I to DVI-I cable, and purchase a seperate DVI-I -> VGA adaptor
    (b) DVI-I to VGA cable
    (c) DVI-D to DVI-D (does Z2 accept this ??)

    I've read elsewhere that there are possible problems with this length of cable. Are there any (inexpensive) alternatives ??. As the Z2 is ceiling mounted I can't really shorten the length.

    Thanks

    I have used an inexpensive 10m dvi - dvi cable with very good results.

    i cannot see any difference if i move the pc closer and use a more expensive 2m cable.

    i got my 10m cable from http://www.cpc.com for around the £12.00 mark.

    worth a try before blowing £80.00 on a slightly better one on paper anyway..

    try it you might save yourself some cash...

    That's your best best, it'll be cheaper than DVI-I and you don't need the extra potential noise generation of the anaolog circuits you'll not be using .. I use DVI-D for my Z2.
