HD DVD player, and DVI.

Postby Xraynorm » Sun Sep 17, 2006 9:54 am

Hello.

Does anyone know if its possible to connect a HD DVD player (with HDMI) to a computer monitor with a DVI input.

You can buy HDMI to DVI adaptors(i think), but will it work?

There are plenty listed with retailers - you need to check if these are HDMI "compatible". That is - will the signal stay HD or will these cause the signal to be downgraded to "standard definition"?

The only way to do this would be contacting manufacturers directly or face-to-face (with a demonstration) in-store.

Thanks.

You need to check if these are HDMI "compatible"


Do you mean the monitor, DVD player, or cable?

My understanding is all of them - if one component isn't compatible the picture will be downgraded. More details at:
