Living Room

I'm sorry, but I have a hard time following this line of logic.

Analog monitors are basically RGB, right? Well, if I want to carry a video signal a long way from a computer to a monitor (we have to do this in a few places at work) I'll use a distribution amplifier to boost the signal, then I'll adapt the VGA cable (all signal wires in one cable) to a five-wire, or RGBHV, cable. This separates the R, G, B signals, and carries two separate sync signals (horizontal and vertical), each in a separate cable. It is much thicker, insulated, and carries the signal a lot better over a distance.

What would lead you to believe that you'd get a higher level of quality by putting the signals together???

For example, see this thread.
