  • Which has less ghosting? VGA Extension or Bus Mouse Extension cable?

    I suppose the title asks the question.

    Which gives less ghosting, assuming both are of good quality cable, a bus mouse extension or vga extension cable?

    I purchased what seemed to be a high quality vga extension cable (it said high quality, and looks high quality, and cost me a high quality amount of money) but I get some ghosting. Would it go away with a bus mouse cable?

    Thanks!

    You mean sending your VGA-signal over another type of cable?

    Depends on the cable I guess.

    The whole ghosting thing is also dependant on the strength of the signal from the videocard and the resolution...

      the lilliput has a breakaway cable that you can apparently connect a bus mouse extension cable in between. i forgot to mention that for anyone unfamilliar with the lilliput sorry

        low power or bad ground can also change things...

          I would hazard a guess at the VGAcausing less problems as there isn't any other wire running with it, i.e. USB.

              How long of a cable did you buy?

                10' which is about perfect in length.

                I also want to say that the ghosting isnt horrible and doesnt bother me much, but it's there.

                  You shouldnt get ghosting on a lilliput over a decent 10' cable unless you try to use a res higher than 1024x768.

                    It happens though. I am getting ghosting since adding a new no name 6 footer to my lillis cable. . . I am searching for a solution... surely ppl have found a way to deal with this. . . Most ppl put there puter in the rear and the screen in the front. . . and have to extend. . . .. Suggestions are welcomed. .
