I think even without all the connectors it would be questionable as to whether the pic would be better than standard component for example. One of the "selling points" of DVI/HDMI is that it removes the necessity for D->A->D conversion, simply adding extra gadgetry will remove even this benefit...PJ

Adapter won't affect quality as it is a digital signal with error correcting codes built in.

this was a quote made by scarty in a different thread but still about the use of adapters,

my own theory.. a digital signal is binary so it either works well or badly with little in the middle,whereas analogue uses a wave sine so is susceptable to loss
