Hi Everyone

I have an issue after purchasing Haydon Passive VGA Video Extenders over Cat5e - the cat5e cable run is about 20 to 30 meters max, The screen flickers on and off - if I set the resolution low (1024x768) it works better but goes off after randomly from 10 seconds to 2 minutes for about 3 to 5 seconds (screen goes black).

Any ideas? I have 3 cables running that way tested all 3 but it's still the same.

tried it on a laptop too and the screen was a little better but still went off for about 5 seconds after a certain amount of time.

Any ideas what it could be that's causing the issue as i need to do another run shortly but don't want the same issue to happen.

Thanks for reading.

If its possible, make a patch lead up about 1m and test it with a really short lead. It maybe that the 20-30m is too much for it.
