Mark (et al), do you know how long the USB cable is that extends off the colorimeter?


I'm going to need to buy an active USB extension cable because my screen is 25' from my HTPC, and I want to make sure I get one that's going to be long enough.


Thanks!

It's about 8 feet, tip to tail. Not an exact measurement, if you need it to the inch.


I just held the sensor to the ceiling, and the cable just touched the floor. I have 8 foot ceilings.


Someone else mentioned this extension cable if you need one.


Thanks


Mark

:) That was me that mentioned that cable in the other thread.


I think it should work nicely, since I don't need to get it all the way to the screen, right?

Putting the sensor all the way to the screen isn't necessary.

Mark-


My HTPC is right next to the Dila. Will the 8' cable be sufficient?

Hi Jeffrey (again),


If you need a short extension, a 6' passive cable works fine (that's what I'm using). They are in all the computer stores.


If it's longer than that, the "active" cable is recommended.


Eight feet looks long when you see the cable, but it really doesn't go as far as you think, especially if you have a ceiling mounted projector.

I ordered the USB extension cable that Mark referred to in a link above (USBGear). FAST. Good feedback from the site. Good price. Recommended. But I don't really know if it works with the sensor do I. ;-)
