So you couldn't have searched and seen that there were already 2 unexpired deals for the same item?

Maybe he was offline yesterday like I was? Maybe he didnt know he wanted one till he saw the deal? Maybe you just need to chill.

Thanks for the repost OP I'll be popping down at lunchtime to get one of these. I wouldnt have seen it unless you had reposted it so have some heat.

So if my TV doesn't have an HDMI port but has a DVI port, I can still use an HDMI cable with this adapter? Would that be correct?

To be honest I didn't know this cable existed and now that I do, I can buy one, so to answer your question I can't search for something when I don't know the name

Please bear in mind that DVI does not carry audio. If you use this to your laptop or whatever your TV, you'll need to use a 3.5mm 'aux' cable (if your TV has this capacity).

Yep. But as above you will need a separate cable to carry the audio (you might need to go into the TVs menu to configure that part).

awesome having just broken my 1m hdmi cable as it was really too short I can replace it with the real mcoy, Cheers OP

Depends. What sort of device are you trying to connect to the TV? If it's a Blu-Ray player then it probably won't work as HDMI ports on TVs also need extra hardware to decrypt HDCP copy protection. If you're just connecting a computer, though, it may work.

Damn son.

DVI cables can carry HDCP encrypted stuff. Before the price of LED TVs dropped massively I used an HDCP-enabled monitor (which only had DVI, no HDMI) as a TV connected to a V+ box.

I use a HDMI to DVI lead to connect a DVD Player/Recorder to a DVI/VGA PC monitor, works perfectly as most DVD Recorders (after 2008) have other sound/video outputs/inputs (scart, AV, phono, component, HDMI, and more) plus built in Freeview. Can also connect old Scart/AV based games console (PS2, Dreamcast, Gamecube etc) and VCR via this method to a PC Screen.

It's not an adapter mate,it's a straight DVI-HDMI cable,mostly used for connecting a pc to a tv.

You'll still need a cable for sound.

What kind of cable would you need to watch videos from your pc on your tv

There were a few of these in Argyle Street branch, picked a couple up for the next time I get asked to help set someone's PC up :-)

Picked one up from Romford a couple of days ago. Was one left.

Want but can never find. Send out the geese!

I dont have a clue about cables & Cabling but my son wants to link his computer to his new 40" tv. To get on internet (he's recovering from major surgery in bed) but we couldn't get any sound would this work. I did read above they said it wouldnt...but what is it used for then?? Helps please fellow hotdealers

If the computer has an HDMI output then you just need a standard HDMI cable. £1 each most pound shops. That will carry sound to the TV as well as the image.

If it does not have HDMI but has DVI then this cable would be perfect, but you would need to use the speakers on his PC for the sound.

If your son's computer has a HDMI port
(Looks like this:
ehelp.wiki.cpp.edu/ima…jpg

intel.cn/con…jpg

Usually there is HDMI marked around the HDMI port just like in the pictures I linked but on mine it was a little bit under the port rather than next to, or on top of the port. But it should be near it. And the shape should be the same.)

If your son's computer is relatively new (maybe about 4 or 5 years old or newer)
it most likely will have a HDMI port especially if it was rather expensive / high spec.

If you're sure you have a HDMI port, use it because that's a lot better than messing around with this cable (DVI to HDMI)
which would NOT give you sound (as others have mentioned, in this case, you'd need a separate cable to channel the sound).

So if you have a HDMI port, buy a HDMI cable (mine is 5m which for the size of my living room is a good size,
I think I could have gotten away with 4m but it really depends on how far away the computer will be from the TV, you'd have to do your own measurements I'm afraid.)

The HDMI cable will channel sound at the same time. If you're having trouble getting sound to work with a HDMI cable,
then you can just type into Google something like

HDMI computer no sound from TV

and there should be YouTube videos and websites that should help you out.
Most likely I think if you have a Windows computer or laptop, if you run into trouble with audio not playing on the TV with HDMI,
you probably just need to right click the speaker icon in the Windows task bar (that bar at the bottom of the screen where the Start button (it has the Windows logo icon on it)
and then click Playback devices, click the TV one which most likely says something like HDMI output, right click that and click enable.)

Do you want me to make a picture tutorial or is your son good at these things already?
Sorry I couldn't be more helpful, I bet I sound confusing.

NEtech & HDDMIPOPs43 Thank you so very much for your assistance. I know I shouldnt really be asking for help on a thread about a cable! Tried the HDMI cable but TV we got him says it doesn't support HDMI from PC and to use a vga cable & Audio lead!! But still there's no sound from TV! He doesn't have external speakers for PC just headphones... im a bit lost... so will search Youtube as suggested. THANKS AGAIN

I've never heard of a TV that tells you something isn't compatible with it.
Do you have an image of what you're referring to exactly?
Was it actually a message that came up on your TV screen, or computer?

If both the TV and computer have HDMI ports, I don't see why it wouldn't work. oO

Furbys, are you sure you changed the TV AV unput / source to HDMI? (instead of TV, DTV, YBPR, SCART or whatever the rest are)
A new TV will definitely work with HDMI, (both my LCD TVs work and they're from 2011!!) so don't lose faith just yet.
I suspect you might have not properly configured the computer to display
to TV correctly.

So can you tell me exactly what happens?

You plug the HDMI into both the computer and TV > then what comes up on the TV and computer screens?

If the computer screen is on and the TV screen isn't showing anything yet,
on your keyboard, hold the start button and press P

(you can let go now)

and select Projector Only.
This will make whatever's on the computer show up on the TV.
I don't know what operating system (OS) your computer uses but I'm on Windows 7
and as far as I know, these keyboard shortcuts work for Windows Vista and Windows 7 (maybe even Windows 8 )

Thanks. My PS4 is connected to a tv with DVI only. Have an optical box converter to transfer the audio. It is only 1m so this will be great, cheers.

Just to let people know these cables can carry audio as I use the same cable from my pc to my tv it depends on your graphics card mine has input for audio.

Really? This is news to me. If true, that's great! Might buy one myself for one of my laptops that don't have HDMI.

Some PC graphics cards put out an "HDMI signal" through the DVI connector (since they're basically the same) and bundle an adapter, instead of putting an HDMI socket on the card. This may well include the audio.
I don't think this is particularly common, though, so pick up a 3.5mm audio cable for another quid while you're there (and hope your TV will take it).

Not particularly common? Darn it, got my hopes up. I did have a feeling that person had a special graphics card.
Although, not bad advice with the audio cable. Oh well. And thanks for the info.

His computer is windows 7 and his TV is Blaupunkt 40/148... in the manual it says NOTE "This model tv cannot be used as a pc/monitor via hdmi input. The HDMI input is provided to view Digital Content with compatible external devises"...It just shows up as NO SIGNAL! DW Ill figure it out just strange!
Please see this link Your text here

Why is poundland primarily located in dumps of towns, don't posh people deserve them too!

never see any of these in my local. But good deal if some can find them

I have same issue fews days ago wanted to connect computer tower to tv which has a dvi connector.

So got dvi to VGA connector and connected it using vga cable.
But I was told that dvi don't carry sound so had to get a separate cable for sound transfer and everything was sorted hope that helps

More rubbish from uninformed users.

Yes an hdmi to dvi cable can carry sound but it depends on your motherboard gfx chip or graphics card whether it can make use of the extra dvi signal wires to your hdmi monitor.ATI Radeon™ HD video cards will pass HD audio through the DVI/HDMI connector/adapter.

I am using one right now with an Asrock FM2A75 motherboard - you also need to check the bios and make sure the setting "Dvi as" is set to hdmi and not dual dvi.

Disc that came with motherboard if it has a HD audio app, normally a good sign on whether HDMI will send audio through slot. or right click on sound bottom right of pc see if HD audio on the playback list. If all else fails google motherboard number and will say.

Most modern laptops and desktops will support the sound

So you didn't realise you needed a DVI to HDMI cable and couldn't type that in a search box?

As we now have three of these listed it seems as if the Mods are making up the rules on the hoof‽
