    I was actually meaning making your own cables out of cat5 and hdmi plugs. The actual HDMI->cat5 extenders usually have boosters in them for running ovre much larger distances.

    $25 for a 40ft cable is actually pretty good, in AU we aren't so fortunate. You wouldn't get a 5 metre cable for that here, nevermind 10 metre.

    What resolution are you running the 669GL at? I'm having some troubles with mine... I posted about them in another thread.
    I won't get it for a couple more weeks, so won't know until then.

    Today I tried extending the reach of my hdmi/usb cable so I could finish my install, but I had no success. First I tried a 12' HDMI cable from the monitor, to a coupler, to the hdmi/usb cable that came with the monitor. The video was fine, but windows couldn't detect the touch screen. Tried several different usb ports on the back of my computer and also tried with no other usb devices plugged in. Nothing worked.

    Then I tried the same with a 6' cable instead. It detected the touch screen, but in the hardware properties there was an error (Unable to start error 10).

    Could this be a power issue? I'm guessing the touch screen is powered by USB. Very frustrating since I spent the time to do a clean install of all the other cables and wires, only to end up having a mess because I can't put the computer in back where I planned.

    Would a powered USB hub help? Any links to a 12V USB hub?

    The usb is for the touchscreen feature, but the monitor itself gets its power from the hot wire wired to it. Did you try hooking up the monitor to your computer without any extension cable or adapters, just the hdmi to hdmi-usb cable supplied?

    I understand that the monitor has it's own power. And I assume that the touchscreen part draws power from usb. It all works fine if I just use the hdmi/usb cable, but it's not long enough. If I extend it with a 12' HDMI cable from the monitor to the hdmi/usb cable, it won't see the touchscreen at all, only the video works. If I use a 6' cable, it detects the touchscreen, but has some error in the properties screen about device not starting or something.

    I have solved the problem now. I run the hdmi/usb cable from the monitor, then extend the usb and hdmi separately to the computer. It's just too bad that I have to use 2 cables (usb&hdmi) to extend it instead of just hdmi.

    I hope I don't run into the same problem when I run mine. I'll be ordering almost everything on black friday (maybe save some money, but doubt it). Anyways when I get everything I'll post back with results and what all I used for monitor.

    I had the same problem, however the way I got around it was to plug the combined USB and hdmi cable directly into the back of the monitor it is important to connect the cable the correct way around. The end that has the USB lead must go to the hdmi extension side whilst the end that doesnt goes to the right angled connector in the back of the monitor. This is the only way I could get the touch screen to work after I had extended both the hdmi cable and USB lead.

    hi all!

    i had the same problem with my FA1011 : combined HDMI + USB cable. video part works well with a 3m HDMI cable + coupler + 1.5m original cable, but there is no touch controller with this configuration. after some measurement, i found the cause of the problem: data wires of USB goes on DDC/CEC GND 17 and TMDS D0 Shield 8. on a normal cable, they are grounded to shielding of the cable > when You connect the long cable with coupler, Your data lines will be grounded too

    cut the plastic on both side of long cable and rewire it: disconnect the cable on both side from CEC Control 13 and reserved line 14, then connect them to pin 17 and 8. they are not required during operation of lilliput and now the touchscreen works well with extended long cable!

    Just to make sure: Does the lilliput 669 need a 90 degree or 270 degree adapter?
