Found 5th Aug 2011
Play are selling these at £34.29 for the 1m cable, this is 3m
Handy if your monitor has only one HDMI input or even none.

Found in Kings Heath, Birmingham. They had a whole rack of these (male and female varieties)


These were separate from the usual tech things so have a look around!

Oh, so you're not slagging a cable off for once, funnily enough, is it because it had the word dvi in it?

Good quality cable ... as in harder to break

Hot!
Nice find heat added
Does anyone know if it carries sound too? Some sound cards (and laptops) will carry HDMI sound through the dvi ports but you need a HDMI-DVI cable (or adapter) with the right pins connected.

I know its a long-shot but mega useful if it does!
I'd much rather pay £100 for a high quality Monster cable. My binary signals are much clearer than yours.
Was passing Kings Heath poundland, all gone:( but had FireWire, s-video and more land fill.
Is dvi-d the same as vga or is it something completely different?

Yep the separate display, a aisle away from the tills, there were a few gaps where i suspect they were:( This was around 6pm

This thread should answer your question.

Summary:

The capability of an ATI card to send audio over DVI varies between cards.
Some need the special ATI dongle, some do not (Radeon 3200 IGP found on motherboards with the 780G chipset for instance).

Basically, any DVI->HDMI cable is capable of carrying audio (as it does not require or use any additional pins).

Note.
The ATI dongle isn't magical, all it does is tell the graphics card that "yes it's ok to send the audio stream through the DVI connector along with the video stream".

Ah, thanks, so the pins should be connected on all of the cables... but the card might need a different dongle...

I'll also ignore the bloke who told me dvi can't carry audio, when it clearly can!

Better off getting a higher quality QED platinum cable for sharper definition.

If your graphics card has a DVI output (most do), and your flatscreen HDTV has an HDMI input (most do) - then yes this cable will allow your PC to use the TV as a display.

Ofcourse transfering sound is a more complicated issue, but you didn't ask that question - so I shan't complicate my reply by answering it.

My GPU is a relatively old 7600GT and has a DVI out and my TV has HDMI connection. What is it I require to transfer audio and sound via 1 cable?

Nope, wrong.

This cable is simply put for connecting the PC DVI video out to a modern TV/Monitor with a HDMI Input.

It will carry video but only sound if you have a graphics card / motherboard that outputs sound over the DVI, most older cards (<=8800GT) do not. If this is the case you may be able to use a 3.5mm jack to RCA cable to connect to the TV or a Receiver via another audio input. This will however not allow for surround sound etc as the HDMI has more bandwidth to allow that. You would get stereo though.

You will not be able to output audio over the DVI so will need a 3mm jack to RCA cable to output the stereo audio from either your sound card, or on board audio output (headphone).

You will however need a TV or a Receiver (Home Theater, Stereo) that can accept the signal. Most modern TV's should allow this. Failing that you can use some normal PC speakers.

I PAID 20 FOR THIS ON BAY!
Am I right in thinking I can connect a laptop that has HDMI with a monitor that has DVI-D with this cable? Obviously going by this situation I need a male version of the cable. I've been hearing a lot of the other way around (DVI-D output to a HDMI monitor) but not HDMI to DVI-D. I don't need audio as it's only for my work laptop, and I know that DVI-D can't receive audio anyway.

I like everyone else is bored to death of these threads oO but thank God finally someone refers to binary rather than '1's and 0's. Are we as a community finally turning a corner here ??. NAH i doubt it

So what I need to play my PC to TV in stereo audio is:

1. DVI to HDMI cable.
2. 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable.

hot deal, desperate to get one for my xbox! none in either hammersmith stores or in the shepherds bush store! anyone know of a store in central london that has one? '
I'm sorry to report there was none of these in the Canterbury store during my visit today. The staff had no idea what I was on about, even after I demonstrated a DVI-D and a HDMI port on two separate cables. They just said "we have what we've got out here" and didn't even offer to go and look. The people that work in these places have no idea how to do anything.

concerned about poor picture quality on these and so am voting cold, sorry cold

The above is realbenders comment on the previous hdmi lead (99p) which was a 1 meter . What makes this lead better - nothing , it looks better but it isn't . It has metal ends which are way to heavy for hdmi sockets . The cheaper plastic end type is much better and unlikey to damage the socket like this one could .
Why do you keep slagging off all the cheap leads ? Because you are a troll .

Yes.

Both HDMI and DVI cables use male connectors at both ends.
The only time you will encounter an HDMI or DVI cable with female adapters is if it's designed to attach to another cable. (e.g. adapter cable or extension cable)

When I've had cheaper HDMI leads (Woolworths own-brand) I noticed that the picture suffered from interference, buying a more expensive lead eliminated this problem as it had better insulation.
So I do believe that there is a difference in quality between HDMI cables. But people must be stupid if they buy a Blu-Ray player for £100 and pay £100 for a lead. A rule of Hi-Fi equipment is to spend roughly 10% of the value of the equipment on cables.
They had some in Norwich this morning. They are 3ft long though, not 3m.
Chill out son. The ones I see in Norwich were 3ft.

The guy asking the question does not say what his computer has hence I told him to check the sockets on . Most modern computers(especially laptops) have hdmi nowadays. If he has a hdmi out, then he should use that to save a cable but also for digital sound using whatever capabilities his tv offers e.g. 5.1 ..



Wrong again. An educated guess would be DVI > HDMI as most TV's have HDMI before a DVI.

I would be willing to bet money he has a DVI on PC and HDMI on TV
