While doing wiring for a RCA component cable now, I plan to install a DVI cable for possible future use without adapters. The cable would connect to a future video card on a Pioneer 433 CMX. Does anyone know how long a run I can use without repeaters and without degrading the video signal to this 1024 x 768 monitor?

The recommended maximum length is 9'9" (3m) and there are several different types of DVI connectors. DVI-A, DVI-I and DVI-D among others. You can find out about this on DVI cable mfg. websites.

Thanks for the info and suggestion to look on mfr. websites. I found the following at Kayye Digital:


"DVI signals remain in their performance specification only to 9.6 meters using the best quality copper cable. The DVI Repeater allows two cables to be joined together for long distances."

in the repeater realm, you can get DVI cables with built-in optical transceivers on each end that go long distances. great solution, powered by the source device, easy.

Where does one find such cables? Do they connect to standard DVI inputs/outputs?
