Hey, its September 6th, so Dos Equis is in order (I bought a case
last night, along with tostados, refried beans, etc)...not buttwiper
beer...When you're close to Mexico, cerveza is plentiful, and its not
even "an import beer" around here...But, the agave plant had some
kind of disease a few years ago and all the tequila is outrageously
priced, even if you drive over to get it from the homeland. Karl

What's the best way to connect our demo-table PC to a multimedia =
projector so the two can be separated by a distance of about 12-15 ft?

Some specifics:
PC running Windows 2k; Panasonic PTL-557U or Mitsubishi SL-1 projector.
We tried an ATI Radeon 7000 video card and an RCA wire, but image =
quality was truly lousy at every setting we could find.

A vga splitter/booster and a long vga cable is the best way I know of to =
get the maximum quality. I'm using a startech splitter and 25 foot =
cable which works quite well. It costs around $60 plus the price of a =
long cable.
