That happens when you get crappy VGA cables. Basically, you get what you pay for. You're probably better off getting a high-dollar cable from a place like a network or audio supply place.
As soon as I added the VGA extension cable to my carpc the quality on the screen took a nose dive. I've gotten used to it, but I know it can be better.
There is an ATEN VS92A VGA signal booster for $30 on eBay (Buy It Now). I am wondering if this would be sufficient to reduce the signal loss I get?
They also have Belkin OmniView extenders for around $20. Seems like a cheap deal. There are a few that carry over cat5 as well (two units).
Yeah I got pretty cheap cables. What's the going rate for good VGA cables?
i bought mine from a local computer store i work at... look for ones with good shielding, the only problem is that there so thick they are hard to bend and hide.
here is a website that seems to have the same one I have
before you buy more ****,
are you sure that maybe just one of your vga cables is cheap and not shielded enough?
maybe try a different VGA extension.
I extended mine and don't have any noticeable drop.
wha'ts funny is that the high quality vga extension was cheap at cirquit city, but the usb extensions are expensive as fuc*
You should pay upwards of $20-30 for a good 6' VGA cable. Likely your problems will disappear when you do that.
Why are USB cables so expensive?? Because printers sell dirt cheap, and do not include a USB cable.... So you buy their $30 cable seperately so they makeup the loss on their printer.
I also have extra slack, much more than I needed. I'll try getting a shorter cable of higher quality.
