    where should i go to get a cable?

    I'm looking to get an extension cable for the lilliput, however where should i go to get the cable?

    I have found these places that carry a mini din 9 pin cable
    http://www.stockcable.com/minidin.shtml
    http://www.computerplug.com/cable_mo...s-ext-tech.htm
    http://www.mp3car.com/store/product_...products_id=46

    And this place that carries a rgb extension cable
    http://www.pccables.com/cgi-bin/orde...search=MONITOR

    I have already gotten this cable from cablewholesale
    http://www.cablewholesale.com/cgi-bi...text=minidin+9

    The cable that i have does not work that good because it does not transmit red, all the other colors come in fine and the picture is sharp, just no red.(i do get red if i dont use the cable)

    I already have a usb cable run to the front of my car so running a rgb ext. cable is not a problem for me.

    What i would like to know is which place would i get a good reliable cable from as far as the min din 9 pin cable is concerned? Has any one else gotten cables from any of theses places that they would recommend?

    Or should I just run a rgb cable? would i notice any difference between the rgb and the mini din cable?

    Thanks

    The cable that is on sale here is only 6 feet long, I would think you would need a longer cable if the computer is in the trunk.

    That is what i noticed too. call me paranoid but I want to make sure that the cable that I get will work, i guess what im looking for is first hand experience with that cable.

    I'm sure mp3car.com will sell me a quality product that will work. I'd just like to hear what other peoples experiences have been

    Also, are the ones at mp3car.com actually 6ft? because the ones i got from cable warehouse were more like 9, even though the invoice said six footers

    I will need about a 9 feet of cable to do the run in my car

    I agree with you. I just ordered that same cable from here today for $9.99. I hope I don't have the same problem you have, because those 2 cables are identical. Even the store display pictures look the same. Time will tell tho.
    If it doesn't work out I will be ordering this one http://www.computerplug.com/cable_mo...s-ext-tech.htm
    I'm almost 99.9% sure this is the correct one.

    Just received a 12 foot extension from stockcable.com. Shipping was as much as the damn cable, but got here quick. Would have got it here if they had 12 footers. Tests out perfect no loss of Video or USB signal. Still sitting on the test bench though, hope this stays true in my ride.

    Check Pin one for continuity...if you want to fix it the pinout for RGBHV is:

    pin 1=Red signal
    pin 2=Green signal
    pin 3=Blue
    Pins 6-10 Ground
    Pin 13 Horizontal signal
    Pin 14 Vertical signal
