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. I asked the dealer , he said that a converter is available , what will the converter do, will it connect the dvi to hdmi, will there be quality loss?

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.

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

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?

No Sound Hdmi To Dvi Cable

Ok here's the thing my monitor which has hdmi, vga and dvi ports on the back

My pc (graphics card) only has a dvi port

The thing is when i connect my monitor to pc using dvi to dvi cable plus a 3. 5 audio jack from my monitor to pc it's fine there is sound but when i use a hdmi to dvi cable there is no sound ? Even though the 3. 5 jack is still connected i no hdmi to dvi cable does not carry sound but i think it overrides the 3. 5 audio jack cable

Please can someone tell me whats the way around this as i really want to use the hdmi to dvi cable thanks

Headphone - Hook Up Ps3 To Computer Monitor Via Hdmi

The situation is i've recently decided to hook up my ps3 to my computer monitor via hdmi, and i'm wondering how to best deal with the sound. As far as i see it, i have (possibly) two options here, at least that would accomplish what i desire. I'm hooked up to my pc at the moment via a pair of headphones, and i desire to still be able to receive my pc audio through these even while using the ps3. I was curious, however, if it is possible to receive output from both the ps3 (via the monitor's audio-out) and the pc at the same time (by using a splitter to plug the headphones into both my pc's sound card and the monitor's audio-out), or would that not function?

The other option i was thinking about was connecting my ps3's audio via optical to my pc's sound card, and hoping i'd be able to hear the audio from both the pc and ps3 that way. But i'm uncertain, too, if that would work, since i'm not sure if i'd have to switch between the pc and optical-in for sound or not. Would this possibility work, or no. ?

If neither is doable, i could always pick up some speakers and hook them up to my monitor's audio-out, but i'm curious first to see if i can get the sound from both ps3/monitor and my pc going to the same pair of headphones somehow (and simultaneously). =>

Edit: to mention hardware, or at least all that i think should matter, my sound card is unfortunately the original x-fi xtremegamer. Which means to use the second option (if it is possible), i'd need to use an optical adapter, i realize.

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).

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.
