Issue Details

I need a Mini-Display port cable that is longer than the ones National Instruments provides.  What should I do?

Solution

National Instruments sells 1/2, 1, 2 M length cables but you may purchase a 3rd party cable that is longer. However, the tests of the CompactRIO's display port are performed with the supported cables so performance is not guaranteed with the 3rd party cables.
