PC to Projector - 40' apart
Iím in the process of trying to hook my PC to my projector and thought to make things easier to run I would do this by Running RCA Cables. I bought a converter that converts VGA to RCA (the converter has one yellow RCA and it also has a S-video connection) for some reason it does not recognizing the PC. I have tried this with smaller RCA cables as well and still nothing.

This is the plug I bought

Did I get the wrong thing? This is an older PC so I guess it could be the Video card.

I have two of these converts and have even tried running them back to my monitor and it still will not work.

Iím thinking about just buying a 50í VGA cable, but with the thicker end it will make thing a pain to run, I donít have a lot of room.

how would you run it?

Key Digital makes some converters that will take VGA in and convert the signal to run on cat5 cable. On the projector end there is another converter that converts back to VGA.

The long VGA cable will be cheaper though.

just use it a time and then see the difference between the original video and sound .
