Ive been given a fairly new Dell monitor and its got a DVI Input - I notice you can get HDMI-DVI cables, could I plug in my Freeview box thats got a HDMI output? Would anything else plug into DVI, like a Scart, Component, S-VHS etc? Thanks for any guidance

Yep - you can plug your HDMI freeview box into your monitor, but you'll need to use a seperate cable to get any sound out of it. It's because HDMI and DVI are the same technology, except HDMI carries sound, and has a different connector.

SCART and all the rest though, that's all very different technology. It's all analogue TV formats, and unless your monitor has the inputs, it won't work.

Thanks chief, yeah no worries taking the sound out to a little surround amp so that should be perfick! Many thanks
