    cutting vga cable

    has anyone cut and extended the vga breakout cable for there liliput? I am asking because I need about 6 extra inches on my VGA cable and was hoping someone has done this just want to findout about any signal loss or interference you may have had.

    Thanks,
    Yonu

    thought of that but I don't want to have to get a 6ft cable to make up literally 6in so I was hoping someone had done it before and could tell me how it worked out

    Well I need also about 6-8inches, but then to be able to panel mount the socket.


    Trying to solder a 15VGA connector is a no no unless you are damn hot (pun intended) at soldering.

    This guy may do what you want:
    It's a vga Y-adapter, but who says you're forced to use the second cable?

    Even so, beaking in the middle of the cable is probably going to introduce interference unless you do a very good job.

    I already have one for the rear screens and have considered using this for the primary one but would prefer just a single.
