LCD Cable

Tue Sep 22, 2015 8:44 am

Hi all
I've got the new official 7" screen and it's great. I want to have the screen remotely mounted away from my pi, is the an extra long flat screen cable or headers available so I can use a normal cable? Only need this cable to be around 1mtr long.
Any ideas.

Thanks Dave

I tried the Camera extension kit successfully ( https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/pi-c ... -extension ), which allows you to use an HDMI cable between the screen and the Pi. It's *not* officially supported in any way and is definitely not HDMI compatible though!
