    I am setting up my projector on back side of the room mounted to the ceiling, with the rest of my equipment at the front of the room under the projected image. I bought a 50ft and 25ft component cable, both gave me a greenish decoloration rolling up the screen because of the long cable run/not-so-great quality cable I assume. But I still need a high quality component cable that is at least 40ft long, and won't have the common negative side effect of long cable runs. Can someone point me out the a good set of cables that will not have this problem?

    I've got 25' long runs that don't give me any problem so it is possible with quality cable.

    Cam,
    I would at least experiment before getting anymore cables.
    What I mean is, put your source components right below your projector, and try the cables from there. Or try a short pair of something else and see what happens. We sometimes use very long runs of component cables(we use
    RG-6) and they still seem to work.

    It just doesn't seem like a discoloration rolling up the screen would be caused by poor video cables. A rolling line is usually a ground loop issue via cable or other electrical issue- do some experimenting.

    oh, and if it does turn out to be the cabling, BlueJeans is a great place to buy from...
