    Make your own VGA cord of CAT5 cable!

    Thank you. I will see about running another wire to that. I did start the computer up normally with a traditional monitor, and set it to the lowest resolution, then plugged it into the TV. After that, I up'ed the resolution to max from there. Also, after 4 cores, I was able to get a little bit of a clear image, but still seems to have 4 echos. Its not noticeable from about 15ft away, but I have problems with details. I complained about seeing the screen divider in a movie theater... I will give another go at it, ill run it outside the casing. If it does make it better, Ill see about getting a new cable made with 10 or 12 lines. Thanks for the feedback.

    I did this, followed everything step by step. I have an issue now and not sure how to fix it. The cable is about 4.2m long and when I plugged it into the TV, the resolution is unsupported. Okay, so I plugged it into a monitor, same thing. What could case this? I used cat 6, not cat 5 if that is the issue. I can redo the whole thing. I would not have thought that to be an issue unless there is a difference. If there is any help, that would be great.
