I'm connecting a MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015) to an Epson PowerLite 811p Projector. I need a 30-foot cable between them, and would prefer to use the HDMI cable I already have.

Is it possible to convert the signal twice, first from Mini Displayport to HDMI, then from HDMI to VGA or DVI?

    How long is 'long'? You'll struggle to push the signal 15m over DVI alone, even without adaptors, unless they are powered converters.

    I think your best bet is a single cable; less chance of error/signal loss.
