    I am going to purchace a new dlp tv but need to know what cables to run for the hook up.

    My audio rack is in the back of the room so I am looking at roughly a 40 foot cable run. I will be hooking up a Satelite reciever and DVD player. I am assumin this is too long for "S" video? I am limited to the number of cables I can snake to the front of the room via PVC pipe.

    Thanks for your help.

    Welcome to the forum, Dominic A!

    I've heard that the maximum length for S-video is 50 feet, so try it out. Worst thing that can happen is that you have to go to the store again and get an S-video amplifier. Radio Shack sells an amp that is inexpensive.

    I can't insert a link yet because of the forum rules, so just go to their site and look under TV, Satellite & Video -> Video Accessories -> Adapters, Splitters, Amplifier. On the second page, you'll find the amplifer.

    Hope this helps!

    You'll probably want to run Component video, or DVI/HDMI depending on what inputs and outputs your equipment has. S-video is standard-def only, no progressive scan, no HD, so it leaves very little upgrade room if you're not going that direction already (which you should be).
