I have a 40' VGA cable from my satellite receiver to my projector now and that does not seem to be a problem.


Will a 40' VGA cable from a HTPC to the projector be a problem?


Thank you.

As long as you don't try to daisy chain four 10-footers or split VGA signals so you can run both your satellite and HTPC into your PJ, 40 foot with a decent cable should be no problem. Above 100 feet is when you'd need amplifiers and such. Under 50 feet should be fine with good video cards like Matrox, Nvidia, or ATI.
