I am in the final stages of my home theater install :D and for some reason just had question come to mind regarding source placement relative to the projector. Prior to my final install I've had my DVD player close to my projector (w/ 3 ft. video interconnects) and a run of approx. 30-35 ft. to my processor for audio. It's worked great.


Should I even bother considering the change or should I leave well enough alone? The only plus I can think of in terms of future upgrades(?) would be running video through my processor allowing for regular TV (or HD) viewing in addition to DVD viewing. That would require the long video run given equipment placement and digital cable access. What would I have to consider in placing my DVD player close to my processor and having the long run be the video. Has anyone priced a component video run of that length recently?


Thanks in advance for your comments,

Mike

There's a company right there with you in Orlando that has great sales on accessories, their website is www.accessories4less.com. Some of the cables they carry are manufactured in Orlando by a company called Tributaries Cable website www.tributariescable.com, they make high-end cables that are top notch but not inexpensive. I've bought from both & they have graet, speedy service. I have used good quality 6' component cables and good quality 50' component cables and don't see any problem with using a 50' video run if you have a good cable. For a 35' cable you're probably going to special order, won't find those in your local stores, and anybody making them is probably producing a good quality product. if you want to spend more, you can get some that have silver plated conducters and have extra shielding and maybe RFI shields.
