    Hi All

    I need to connect my PC DVI-I output to the HDMI on my HS50. Can I use etiher a DVI cable or HDMI with a DVI-HDMI connector? Are all cables two way?

    Thanks

    There are DVI-HDMI cables out there. The DVI end is DVI-D. I am yet to find a DVI-I to HDMI adaptor.

    You can use a straight DVI to HDMI cable or you can use a DVI to DVI or an HDMI to HDMI cable with suitable adapters.

    See http://www.hdmiplanet.com/adapters.html

    Keep in mind your HDMI input is a 'Video' input - you may need to set your PC to 720P@50 or 60 Hz before you get an image; you'll need to look in the HS50 handbook to find out what signals it accepts via the HDMI socket.

    Best regards

    A little thread resurrection here. I am wondering if I made a poor call in choosing cables to put in the wall. I put in DVI-I, and as I remember it is fully connected (ie.e. digital and analogue). Don't want the analogue at all, but I didn't really understand the difference at the time (yes I know, I should have checked more). However, the Sagem DLP screen I had went phut, and I am going to replace it with something with an HDMI connector .... but to use it I need to connect the DVI-I cable to an HDMI plug.

    Sooo, I'm wondering if anyone has found a DVI-I -> HDMI adaptor or cable yet? All the ones I have seen have blanks for the four analogue pins, so it won't connect. I guess I could get some pliers and simply rip the four pins out of course ...

    Thoughts?

    Cheers

    Greg
