hdmi to dvi cable


Standard Member
looking at prices for this i can get a 10m hdmi to dvi cable for £90 but can get a hdmi to hdmi and a hdmi to dvi conveterfor £60 would the latter make the pic any worse or should i just get the hdmi to dvi cable and stop messing around?

The converters have no impact on PQ from what I have seen, but are the two cables of equal quality? There are good, and bad, DVI and HDMI cables out there.

Better to purchase a single piece cable HDMI2DVI now and if required you can add in a converter at a later date - you can convert DVI to HDMI just as easily as HDMI to DVI.

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

Ensure any long HDMI to DVI cable you purchase is on sale or return - especially so when its DVI at the receive end; not all cables are created equal and depending on what signal your trying to send over 10m you can get varied results.

If I understand your figures your saying you can get a 10m HDMI cable + an adapter for a total figure of £60.00 - that's a mighty cheap cable.

Best regards
