    Sorry if this is not the approporate place to post this.

    I am going to be running an InFocus LS110. I was wondering if someone could tell me what is the longest length of S-Video cable I can coming out the back of my DVD player without seeing degragation in video quality?


    Thanks

    Don't know what the longest suggested length is. All I know is I am running with a 20ft s-video cable at the moment. It is triple shielded with silver conductors. How long do you need to run?

    Rick,
    The short answer is that you shouldn't be running S-Video to the projector. It has component and HD-15 connectors. DVD players with component outputs are ridiculously inexpensive. If you have a hi-def receiver with component outs you can get a box that will switch component to HD-15. Use them. [​IMG] Your eyes will thank you.
    I don't recommend S-Video runs of over 25 feet. Loss of signal can become a rick.
