That's HDMI to HDMI - This is DVI to HDMI - Different connections.

You'd have to buy an additional HDMI to DVI convertor as well to use the cable your reference

Ill vote hote, paid twice this amount previously, use for my PS3 to my Dell monitor

Dammit I just bought a 360 to VGA cable for £5...will the picture be even better if I bought this?


No.... VGA / HDMI off the xbox is pretty much identical. HDMI is slightly sharper on my screen, but only slightly. Also you don't get split sound from the HDMI cable - unless you buy the official microsoft one, which isn't DVI.

If that made any kinda sense I'm surprised.
#12
Voted hot with rep! Been waiting for one of these to drop sub £5 so I can hook my PS3 up to my 22" Fujitsu monitor. :santa:
#13
So you can connect a pc monitor to a HDMI device ... Didn't know you could. Cool
#14
Without wanting to go over old ground - Digital signals are either received or not. You can send them through gold, copper or kryponite. Don't pay more more gold plated cables. It's like haveing a gold plated 3 pin plug on yur washing machine and saying its more efficient and gets the clothes cleaner!

I have a Dell XPS laptop coming soon, I currently have an Xbox 360, 40inch Samsung LCD, and a nice seperate system (Amp/CD player/floorstanders), what does this thing allow me to do? I'm bad with connection cables :(

From what I understand it allows me to send video but not sound from say my laptop to my LCD, is that correct?
banned#17
lumoruk
Yeah it does, it's more convenient for me to have it on the VGA port of my monitor allows me to switch to and from my PC with just a press of the button on my monitor. Noticed you can buy DVI switches but that's an added expense.


Yeah, just to add - I prefer the picture from the xbox vga cable. Also need my single HDMI port for Sky HD!

I think your Dell XPS will have an HDMI connection (it does on my xps1530) so you would be better with a standard hdmi lead from laptop to LCD which would carry video and audio so long as you change the default setting on the soundcard to hdmi.
#19
Yeah sorry I meant HDMI not DVI, silly me, aha, I'll skip on this cable then and do as you advised, thanks for the help guys..:santa:

*Grumble* Damn I suck at cabling :|

can someone tell me do I need to order this one or the one which is hdmi to hdmi for the xbox 360to hd tv, many thanks in advance

Just to point out looking at the DVI connector this looks as though it is a DVI-D (Dual Link) connector, it may seem obvious but if your monitor is not specifically DVI-D (Dual Link) you will not transfer at 1080p (4th image down in the picture) below, also your Monitor has to be HDCP compliant to enable this cable to work, people often get muddled when they think all DVI are the same, some have DVI-D (Single link) some are DVI -I etc, only DVI-D (Dual Link) is able to transfer 1080p, very good price so hot from me!!

Quote

"To obtain the highest-possible resolution from DVI technology, a dual link, 24-pin connection is required. Dual-link provides the convenience of backward-compatibility with AV hardware that is single-link-enabled only. However, only Dual-Link can carry a 1080p signal"

The short answer is you can't do audio over DVI.

The long answer is it is possible, but you would have to have a device (e.g. compat NVidia Graphics card + drivers) that is capable of doing it. The HDMI/DVI Spec supports TMDS and compatible devices can encode audio into the Data Island periods. See Wikipedia for details.

It's absolutely nothing like that - please do your research before you post such nonsense !

Cable connectors are gold-plated to stop them tarnishing. It has nothing to do with signal quality, and is simply to keep the connection "good" for a longer period of time. The gold doesn't oxidise like the unplated connector.

Gold-plated connectors are a good idea, but you certainly shouldn't be paying significantly more for them - they cost almost the same as normal connectors.

Just to point out looking at the DVI connector this looks as though it is a DVI-D (Dual Link) connector, it may seem obvious but if your monitor is not specifically DVI-D (Dual Link) you will not transfer at 1080p...

Not true - you're unlikely to find a monitor with a resolution of 1920x1080, with just a single-link DVI connector, for obvious reasons ! How would you drive the screen ?

You should only be concerned if you're using the cable the other way around - connecting a single-link DVI output (found on older video cards !) to a 1080P-capable DVI input.
clondikemike
also your Monitor has to be HDCP compliant to enable this cable to work

Not true - both DVI and HDMI operate perfectly without HDCP. Whether you need it or not, depends on whether you intend to show HDCP-protected content.
clondikemike
people often get muddled when they think all DVI are the same, some have DVI-D (Single link) some are DVI -I etc, only DVI-D (Dual Link) is able to transfer 1080p

Not true again. Only Dual-Link DVI can transfer 1080P - but it will happily do so in both DVI-I and DVI-D flavours, given that the digital parts of each are identical :)

DVI-A is analogue-only. It's very rare you'll ever come across this, and it's not really DVI - it's simply VGA with a different connector.

DVI-D is digital-only. Again, it's very rare you'll ever come across this.

DVI-I carries both the analogue and the digital signals. In practice, this is what you'll find on almost every DVI-equipped device.

Spot on ! It's worth noting that most modern video cards support Dual-Link DVI - this is no longer an issue, unless you're dealing with older kit.

Didn't think laptops came with DVI out sockets ;-)

They sure do.
lumoruk
it will allow you to output a HDMI socket to an LCD screen/monitor that has DVI

And the other way around - you can connect the DVI-output of your laptop to the HDMI-input of your Telly.

Also need my single HDMI port for Sky HD!

Whaaa!?? Interesting......

Which bit :?
#26
lumoruk
That's what I thought but some cables I've had are only one way :thinking: I've got a scart cable that I have to flick a switch on from input to output.

That's a SCART strangeness, because it uses different pins for different directions ! It was designed by the French :thumbsup:
lumoruk
He's using a massive flat panel monitor instead of an expensive TV for his sky HD....:?

Ah :-D

I only have a VGA out on my Dell Latitude D820 (no HDMI or DVI I dont believe).
I have a Pioneer PDPLX5090 tv.

Whats my best bet (best signal quality) for using the tv as an external monitor - VGA ==> HDMI (tv) or VGA ==> VGA (tv)? Any recommendations/sources?

Have a lookHere

You could use a VGA to Scart adapter like the one Here at £4.70 Delivered - Just a quick search so you may well find one cheaper on Ebay or elsewhere.

Another option could be if you have a docking station with DVI/HDMI output - Obviously this will be more costly if you haven't already got one though.

excellent going to order myself one

Great find just ordered 3, heat added

No HDCP means this will not work with some things (IE V+ to a DVI TV/Monitor)

My DVI-D TV doesnt have HDCP, thus no HDMI lead will go in it, so be warned. I wasnt warned when I bought it for £750.
#33

Then your only option is to connect it to your display by VGA.

You'll need to buy yourself a copy of AnyDVD-HD to bypass the need for HDCP (which doesn't exist in the analogue domain).
Brewer

You can't simply convert VGA to HDMI - one is analogue, and one is digital :)

Only HDMI and DVI are interchangeable.

Not true - you can almost never use a cable like this.

VGA and SCART are both RGB - but both use completely different scan rates and sync methods. The only way such a cable would work, is with a display that could specifically accept a VGA signal through it's SCART socket. It's for a specific use, and will not work with most TVs !

Not true - HDCP is only relevent for playing protected HD content, and Any-DVD HD bypasses any such requirement.

Actually, you were warned - that's what the HDReady standard is for !
If your set doesn't support HDCP, then it's not HDready...

Having said that, you can still connect an HDMI source to your DVI-D port - HDCP is only required for protected HD content.

My vaio laptop has a HDMI slot. Can this cable be used to connect my Samsung 2333SW monitor to my laptop? Will this be better in terms of quality than a VGA connection?

Yep !
hdizzle
Will this be better in terms of quality than a VGA connection?

Nope ! Both are more than capable of carrying HD video.

Having said that, some displays are better at handling some formats than others - if the Samsung isn't great with VGA, and the Vaio doesn't have a decent VGA output (more common than you might think), and you're using a crap VGA cable, then you may well find the HDMI to be better.

I'm not sure what you mean here, a 1920x1080 screen only needs a single link DVI connector as it's within the 1920x1200 limit (with reduced blanking) for a single link connection.

Is this a DVI-D Dual link? It's for a BenQ G2410HD monitor going into a 5770.

Thanks in advance.
