Dvi To Hdmi Adapter Work ?

Someone i know wants a htpc. You know me i pick quality parts:p but im wondering. His sound system will be running off the tv (plugged into the tv. Atleast thats how i think it will hoook up). I remember people saying theses new video cards were going to have hdmi built in but all i see on the 2600/2400's elc is a dvi port. I dont see how you can send the sound signal out trough the dvi(video) port.

Built In Hdmi Or Dvi - Hdmi Adapter

Does it matter? I have a biostar matx 939 board with 3000+ venice with 7800gt and 1 gig of ram. I'm wanting to use this pc as a very light game machine (civ 4: colonization and other strategy, probably never fps cause i hate playing from my couch) and all purpose computer in the living room. I'm looking at a 4830 or so, maybe 4670 depending on price. Want to spend less than $80 - $90 shipped. I need the card to output sound. I want to run a single cable from the pc to my 47" 1080p tv which outputs sound via optical to a surround sound receiver. Will a card with no native hdmi out output sound, making the adapter worthless? Or?

I don't see any free shipping on 48xx cards with an hdmi port built in from newegg. Needs:

Play sound through hdmi
Light gaming
Eventually be able to play bluray discs (will eventually get a blu ray drive) (cpu will probably need upgraded though?)
$80-$90 shipped

Do I Need To Buy An Adapter For Hdmi Cable To Plug Into Dvi Port?

I bought a cable to connect my ps3 to my desktop monitor. It is a hdmi to dvi cable. My monitor has a dvi and d-sub port. Even though the cable i got says it is hdmi to dvi it will only connect to the d-sub port (the d-sub is smaller and blue and the hdmi is larger and white). Do i need to buy an adapter to allow the hdmi cable to plug into the dvi port or am i doing something else wrong entirely. When i turn on the ps3 nothing comes up. I tried holding the on button to reset the ps3 display settings to hdmi but nothing happened. I suspect i need to buy the adapter but i wanted to confirm before i go buy it. My monitor is a hanns g hi221d. I'm pretty sure my monitor should be compatible but i'm sure someone knows alot better than me.

Hdmi To Dvi + Optical ?

I have a laptop with hdmi output but no optical toslink out. I am using a dell ultrasharp that has only dvi or vga input. Would there be any way to split the video/audio hdmi to a dvi and then optical to go out to my receiver?

If i was using a tv i could always just use the optical out from that, but my dell has no such thing. The only thing i could find was a 4 port hdmi switcher on monoprice that also outputs toslink but at $50 it's more than i'd like to spend when i don't need the switching functionality. Anyone with a similar situation that could offer advice on the subject?

Ati Dvi To Hdmi Adapters

I have an ati 3870 dvi to hdmi adapter here and i noticed it has all its pins (known as dvi-d (dual link). On the other hand, looked at an ati 4870x2 dvi to hdmi adapter and noticed it has missing pins (known as dvi-d (single link). Why would this be since 4870 supports mode audio features then 3870?

Eyefinity 6 Included Dp To Dvi And Hdmi Adapters

Well, luckily the eyefinity 6 models look like they come with almost all the adapters you need - 2 dvi, 1 hdmi, 2 mini dp to dp. [5? Shouldn't it come with 6?]

Why couldn't ati have included one of these dp adapters with the regular eyefinity models? And these look like simple passive pass-through connectors to me, does it work just like that? What about all the fuss with active adapters we had to deal with for our regular 5xxx models? Are the mini dp's somehow different? Why couldn't ati have included one dp to dvi for their regular models when most of us will have to find $125 adapters that may or may not even work (as we have had several posts about approved list active adapters still causing blinking screens).

Dvi Or Hdmi To Connect Computer To Monitor

Should i use dvi or hdmi to connect my computer to my monitor? My screen resolution is 1920x1200 and my monitor has inputs for both dvi and hdmi. I currently have it hooked up using a dvi cable because i don't have an hdmi cable. Would i benefit in any way by switching to hdmi? Would i benefit by staying with dvi instead of switching to hdmi or is it the same both ways?

Convert Dvi To Hdmi For Samsung Monitor

How to convert dvi to hdmi for a samsung monitor? I am gonna buy a samsung 24" full hd monitor which has a dvi port but not a hdmi. Sometimes i am gonna use my home-theater to connect to this monitor but the problem is that my home-theater has a hdmi conn only and no dvi conn.

Will this conversion have effect on the full hd 1080p movies i will watch? I have also heard that dvi does not carry sound, so then where will the sound go after conversion and lastly what all effects will this conversion make, and for how much is this converter available and which brand is good.

Dvi To Vga Adapter

I'm getting the 6600 gt ( bfg ) soon , but i just realized that the card have these connectors only ( connectors: dual dvi-i, hdtv / s-video out ). That means there is no vga connection. And what i have in my house is this 19' crt monitor. So shall i get a dvi to vga adapter or what ? And how much do these costs ? ( I think it's the adapter won't come with the box, here is the link for the card ). Never saw a dvi to vga adapter and i don't know if i need one and how much do they cost. Thanks in advance guys !

Edit: sorry for the rush, i realized that a dvi to vga dongle is included in the box. Anyways to not make this thread totally trash, what is the main benefit for a dvi-i connector?

Where To Buy Active Dp-dvi Adapter In Uk ?

Well i finally did it, the sli gtx280s are being pulled tonight for the installation of the 5870 (crossfire eventually once drivers settle down) and i'm itching to try eyefinity. Now where the *** can i get an active dp-dvi in the uk, you us guys are so lucky they are available everywhere but they are not in stock anywhere here. Any us vendors that ship to the uk or europe based ones anyone could point me in the direction of. I cant get a dp version of either of my current displays (no 28" dp and i cant afford a 3008 and a 3007)

I never thought having a 30" 3007 monitor and a hanns-g 28" would become a disadvantage but when you are suddenly faced with having to have three the same it sure does so my eyefinity setup is likely to be based around smaller monitors (probably 28s) but i'll worry about that once i have my adapter.

Dp To Hdmi Adapter

I didn't see anywhere in the review what came in the box so i am assuming that there is no display port to hdmi adapter included in there? Newegg doesn't even sell one as far as i can tell. It seems to be a difficult cable to find. I have only managed to find it at one place online and it's more of an adapter than it is a cable. I would need one for my setup though.

4800 Series Hdmi Adapter

I was just wondering if the hdmi adapters that come with this series of cards carried sound. For example i would just have to use the adapter and a hdmi cable to hook it up to tv and have both sound and video? I plan to use this so i can watch some of the videos on my computer on a larger screen then my dell 2005fpw. Basically this question is all that is holding me back from purchasing a 4890 in the near future.

Hdmi Connection Not Work On Monitor

Why doesn't my hdmi connection work on the monitor? My motherboard and lcd have hdmi ports. I used an hdmi cable to connect them, but it doesn't display anything. I have a video card installed, but it doesn't have an hdmi port. Any suggestions?

I figure it doesn't work because i have a video card installed. I hope i'm wrong.

Dell Xps Ac Adapter Does Not Work

I have a dell xps m1710 laptop and the battery has died in it, but up until now the ac adapter has worked (that is some 2 years. ) Then all of the sudden, before the laptop boots the os, i get the following message: the ac power adapter cannot be determined. The system can only boot with a 130 w power adapter or greater. I have made sure that the power adapter works using a volt meter, and i have made sure that the power adapter outputs a minimum of 130 watts. I can't seem to figure out what is the problem!

Dvi-d Connector To Dvi-d Dual Link

Im looking at a graphics card that has a dvi dual link output. The monitors i am looking at list dvi inputs. I am assuming they are dvi-d single link. Can i use a single link cable on the dual link outputs? It looks like the single link just has less pins, are they compatible? I know i wont benefit from the increased resolution and such, but will it work, or do i need to look at adapters?
