I am setting up my first Home Theater/Entertainment area and need some help finishing it. Because of space and wiring issues, I was not able to place all my components close to the Samsung DLP HLN507 TV, so I built a A/V rack at the back of the room. The A/V Rack is 45 wiring feet from the TV. I want to make sure that my TV has the best quality signal for HDTV and am wondering what is the best way to handle the wiring. I have a Denon AVR3803 receiver that I am planning to run all the component equipment through and then to the TV, but I also want to run DVI. Can you run DVI that length without losing significant video quality? If so, do I need DVI-Dual or single? What is the difference? Any ideas where to purchase a DVI cable of that length for a decent price? Or would it be better to install the DVI DVD player by the TV and just run the audio to the rack? Thanks for the help....

The maximum “recommended†length for DVI-D is only 5 meters.


You should use DVI-D dual-link because single-link is for lower resolution signals.


The cheapest place I know of to buy DVI cables is Pacificcable.com
