Hey All...

I have to run a 50ft cable from my computer (DVI) to my LCD TV, but my TV only has a VGA input. VGA on the tv works fine but only with a very short cable. So would it be better to run a pure DVI to DVI with a VGA adapter or run a 50ft DVI cable with the other end VGA.

Is the re even a difference? Will my picture be ok with a 50ft run like that? Should I try 25ft?
