I may have to use a 45 feet VGA to BNC cable from my HTPC to Sony G70 and wondering if I am going to have trouble with long cable. Also, I am thinking to use a video singal amplifier. If I have to use an amplifier, which one do you recommend?


Thanks in advance!

Yes, it might degrade signal some. A PC video card usually can't drive a 45 foot long cable, just not strong enough.


Get an Extron box or have your video card modified by Mike Parker. The ATI Radeon with Mike's MP-1 is really quite amazing... and can drive 30-45 feet of RG6 coax very well.

If you use a very short breakout cable to seperate 75 ohm coax for the long run you will have much better results than if you try to just use a long vga cable. You may need a vga distribution amp also, but a good cable would go a long way (pun intended) to give you a clean signal.


btw I've found that the startech videoview 8 way vga amps are actually very clean with fairly high bandwidth, if you want to get a cheap amp solution.
