Hey the vga is just a standard vga with ferrite beads on the ends. I assume its insulated. I bought it on ebay though from china. used to work great on my plasma tv. But get this, I bought a $58 dollar 10 foot monster cable vga from bestbuy. And it works perfect! looks like I had a poor quality cable. So I will most likely return this cause 60 bucks for a cable is nuts. I will buy the same one online for less. Last problem is the car charger for the laptop induces a small amount of noise. I've tried it directly off the battery and no change. So I will do some reading maybe add a capacitor on the end to clean it up. I will report back. Getting closer and closer. Glad I didn't give up!
