Laptop TTL LCD cable extension
Hello, my first post on these forums.
I would like to extend the cable between a laptop and it's LCD 12" panel, about 4 feet. This subject has be treated several times and there is a FAQ about it but something is not clear (at least for me :confused: ).
I have read several times here that extending a LVDS cable should be a breeze, but of course, my old laptop seems to have a TTL cable (P0~P23 pins, plus 6 others) and many people say TTL cable should not exceed 18 inchs.
At least the inverter is directly in the LCD panel case, so I won't have any problem with it.
On the other hand I can see at least two persons, Yuriy and 99Bravada who wrote they successfully extended a TTL cable to 4 and 6 feet without any interference, with a printer cable or an IDE *unshielded* cable.
I really wonder if I should try to extend my cable or not, and what cable I should use for that (simple flat IDE unshielded, or printer cable centronics 36 wires, or SCSI double shielded cable 50 wires)?
