    Lilliput 669GL-70NP Extending HDMI Cable

    the 669 has the usb and hdmi cable combined, so it goes from Hdmi to hdmi-usb. Would it be possible to plug a normal hdmi cable up to the monitor then plug there hdmi-usb cable up to that, so you could still use the touch screen?

    HDMI Cable --> Adapter --> hdmi-usb cable

    you can use a HDMI extension cord and it'll work just fine. Monoprice sells them for pretty cheap

    not quite sure what you mean. If you have seperate HDMI and usb cables it wont work, as the HDMI/USB cable that comes with the 669 combines to HDMI when connected to the monitor.

    A cheaper solution you may want to consider is running HDMI over CAT5.

    In my new project I'll be running HDMI and 2 USB lines over 2 CAT5 cables. Means everything is nicely shielded and a buttload cheaper than shielded HDMI and USB extension cables.

    Cat5e usually goes for about 50cents a metre (in Aus, which is actually the same in the US at the moment). For HDMI I would go for Cat6 which is a bit more expensive.

    The benefit to Cat5/6 is you can run exactly as much as you need and it can actually carry a variety of different stuff. In the case of the USB/HDMI comb lilliput use, you could easily extend that using cat6.

    i don't think it is cheaper to use cat5-- as cla1067 posted, mono-price is really cheap for cables-- even a 40foot hdmi is only $25.. a brief search shows that hdmi-to-cat5 converters are $80/pr....

    You should be fine with an extension. I have a monoprice right angle adapter on mine, and everything works.

    What resolution are you running the 669GL at? I'm having some troubles with mine... I posted about them in another thread.
