Hello hulky

I nearly passed out trying to read your post in one go :)

DVI-I - a DVI-D Adapter will work with your Output socket; you don't require the extra pins to access the Analogue portion of the DVI-I socket as your not going to use them with an HDMI cable.

DVI to HDMI cables - there are probably half a dozen cable suppliers with Banner Adds on the AVForums who provide all manner of DVI to HDMI cables. Look at the top and bottom of this page.

DVI to HDMI cable - these are Bi-directional so you can use them DVI>HDMI or HDMI>DVI; keep in mind they generally only carry Video not Audio.

PC to Video - keep in mind you need to set your PC to one of the Video Resolutions the HDMI Input socket on your Display is happy with; see the Table of Accepted signals for the HDMI Input in the Displays User Manual; then work out if you can set the PC to that resolution and framerate.

Best regards
