    DVI oh DVI, Oh why duth you depresses I,...
    Dramatic I know, but that's how i feel.
    Want to hook my brand new 2910 up to my projector..At the moment I only have VGA and component into my proj. Its all in the walls.
    So I thought I'd be clever and buy a DVI to VGA adaptor to carry the signal to the proj.... But it appears that DVI aint a standard.. The DVI connector I bought does not fit in the hole of the 2910?? The pins are different.
    Anyone know why?
    Will it work with an adaptor or will I have to smash the walls down to put in an HDMI?

    Please help...I want to play with it :(

    Sadly DVI has 3 different options. DVI-D, DVI-I, DVI-A

    DVD-D is a digital only connection (which i think the denon has)
    DVD-A is an analog only connection
    and
    DVD-I carries both of the signals

    The adapter is DVI-I and the socket is DVI-D, they are not compatible as the adapter has the extra 4 pins around the horizontal pin.

    The only way to get a DVI picture is to use a DVI cable, if the 2910 had a DVI-I connector you would still not be transferring a digtial picture down the VGA cable, it would still be analogue.

    Oh bugger, so it looks like I will have to get a new cable?
    Seeing as it will have to go all round he room, what would be best at 15 metres, DVI or HDMI?
    Also, will there be much difference beween the component out and the DVI/HDMI?

    Cheers
