    hi,

    i know this has probably been covered before, but i have ordered an adaptor from dealextreme for converting dvi to hdmi. I recently purchased a TV from sainsburys that only has two hdmi inputs. i.e. no dvi, or vga input.

    I wanted to know if there is a difference between dvi-hdmi, and hdmi to dvi.

    I need to connect a graphics card with dvi out to a tv with hdmi in, is there a particular cable for this ?

    I am thinking now, that there may be a difference like in the scart input and output cables...

    could for instance this cable be used to connect a hdmi output (i.e. xbox 360 ps3) to a dvi monitor....?

    if so what cable / adaptor do i need ?

    this is what i ordered....

    DealExtreme: $3.27 HDMI(High-Definition Multimedia Interface) F to DVI 24+1 Connecter

    please help.....

    Alun

    The connector you've ordered should work OK when combined with a HDMI cable - you won't get audio though, just video!
