  2. hello tks for responding to my querry. yes there are other options hdmi rca. I use the pc option on the tv monitor. I already cut head off and run wire under concrete tube. most computer older do not have hdmi,
  3. A VGA cable carries an analog signal,
    and the maximum length decreases as the resolution goes up.
    so,
    1024x768 can run effectively over a 9 meter (30 ft) cable, but
    1600x1200@60Hz won't work well past 1 meter (3.5 ft).

    Your options are to user repeaters to increase the distance
    to over 600 ft - http://www.networktechinc.com/cat5-vga.h…

    or use DVI instead. Since it's digital it can carry longer, even with high resolutions, up to 30 ft

    Hope that helps...
