    vga extension cable

    hi to all, i am planning to move my carputer from under my seat to the car's trunk. i have a xenarc 700 tsv touch screen monitor, i am wondering is it ok to just use a vga extension cable to run my vga to the trunk, also i am planning to use a usb extension cable for the touchscreen. will this have any effect with the quality of the signal compared to buying the 5meter xenarc vga cable? thanks

    as long as you dont use more then a total of 12.6 ft of cable you should be ok. More then that and video will degrade drastically. So if you have a 6 ft cable on the back of the touch screen you will only be able to use 1 extention cable.

    Wait a sec.. Can someone verify this? I know alot us have installs in the trunk. I strongly doubt i could make it to my trunk with 12 feet and i have a midsize sedan. I was planning on getting at least a 15 foot. Anyone else have extensions longer than 12 feet?

    thanks for the tip again, yeh i did not buy yet coz i was wondering if the 6ft would actually reach my trunk, its a good thing that going longer than 12 feet is no problem.

    Make sure it's properly screened, other wise it will cause interference.
