    I do realize this is beyond the recommended length. I will be using it between a Sanyo Z2 and a Momitsu 880. I'll be making these purchases next week and am going to need a 10M DVI cable to connect the two. Is anyone using this length cable? I do plan to have the projector calibrated and am wondering if this may make a difference in any sparklies I get from this length of cable. Any thoughts from the calibrators on this? What cables have you seen that have worked well?

    Buy from somewhere with a moneyback guarantee.

    I'm using a 9m cable from Better Cables, and it works fine at 1400x1050. I've also used a 10m fiber optic cable.

    With that resolution (1280x720), you should be fine with a well made 22-24AWG copper cable.

    Well this should be in the tweaking accessories forum however for my dedicated home theater we use normal coax rg-6 cable(like for cable TV) for long lengths. We then use connectors that convert it to RCA type jacks and have had great performance for a low cost(coax isn't all that expensive).
