Cheap price, QUALITY cable.I have been using this a while now connecting my computer to my HDTV. Picture quality is perfect, and the cable still works great.Don't be fooled by expensive cables, it's only in the name and possibly the build quality (how long the cable will last). Digital signal is digital signal, cable quality is really only important with analog cables where the system must decipher an unknown signal. With digital it knows it can only be a 0 or a 1 data bit that it's receiving. So if you get a picture with an $80 cable and a $5 cable the quality of the picture will be identical. Don't let amazing marketing convince you!The only time you should be spending a lot on a cable is if it's inside the wall/outside where the environment or interference can affect it. 5HDMI to DVI-D Cable - what it is and what it's forThe DVI connector here is a single-link DVI-D, where D stands for "digital only signal." That means it works with most modern equipment but if you have a video card, TV, or something else from the early 2000s, you might want to check if they can send or receive digital signal over DVI.The "single-link" refers to the throughput; in other terms, to the resolution you can get on your screen. Theoretically, maximum screen resolution at 60 Hz you can get is 2.75 megapixels or this, in more convenient terms: 16:10 ratio of 2,098 1,311 4:3 ratio of 1,915 1,436 pixels 5:4 ratio of 1,854 1,483 pixelsAs you can see, the standard 720, 1080i, and even 1080p, the later being 2.1 megapixel or 1920 1080, should be supported.Your mileage, however, will vary. The maximum resolution you will get will depend on the specs of your equipment that you interconnect with this cable, and how those two pieces of equipment communicate with each other. In other words, you can hope for 1080p and you might even get it; but you might have to settle for 1080i.One more thing worth noting - this will not carry audio from HDMI. You'll need to route audio signal separately.The quality of cables that you receive will vary - there are way too many sellers that carry them. However, unless there's a major problem with it - bent pins, extra or missing pins, you cannot tighten the screws on the DVI connector, etc, they all should work just fine. If you have a problem, just return it for a replacement or simply return it and get it from another seller. BTW, don't let them get you on return shipment and restocking fees - it's not going to fly here. If you are asked to do any of that, just tell the seller you'll contact Amazon support to confirm if that is actually in the rules. They'll fold.There are more expensive cables out there that are supposedly of better quality, but this one should work just as well. 4Didn't even remember this, it was so trouble-free!I have been contemplating a Mac mini purchase, and as part of my consideration, I wanted to know if I could use a monitor I have right now. Currently I have a PC running 2 monitors: a 21" 1080p HD and a 21" non-HD Acer. The Acer only has DVI-D and VGA connections, and since that's the one I would want to connect to the Mac (go back to a 1 monitor per computer setup and keep the HD monitor on the PC for gaming), I thought I would do some research because the Mac mini only has HDMI and Thunderbolt connectors.Well, I'm glad I checked Amazon to see what HDMI/DVI-D cables cost. Amazon told me I'd already bought one of these cables in February 2012, which confused me at first. Then I looked up my order history, and when I saw what the other items in the order were, I remembered: my Acer right now is ALREADY currently connected to my PC with the HDMI/DVI-D cable. This very one. And I had completely forgotten about it, because it was so easy and trouble-free. Set it and forget it. That's what I like in cables. This one certainly gets 5 stars! 5Good cable, but NOT HDCP compliantHDCP is Short for high-bandwidth digital-content protection, a specification developed by Intel for protecting digital entertainment content that uses the DVI interface.HDCP encrypts the transmission of digital content between the video source, or transmitter -- such as a computer, DVD player or set-top box -- and the digital display, or receiver -- such as a monitor, television or projector.HDCP is not designed to prevent copying or recording of digital content but to protect the integrity of content as it is being transmitted.If you are trying to play a ROKU on a projector, you will be able to see menus, but will only show a purple screen during content play.Buy a 9 pin d-shell to hdmi or a HDCP certified HDMI to DVI cable, instead. Here is the product you want:http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001P75IFE 4It's a cable, gosh darnit!I first went looking for an HDMI -> DVI cable at a national big box retail store, only to discover that the cheapest one they had was $70! I had expected to get ripped off, but I'd expected something "reasonable" like a 500% or 600% markup - not 4000%! I was so shocked by the blatant robbery that I couldn't restrain myself - I laughed out loud and giggled my way out the door empty handed.One quick hop over to amazon.com, and this little baby was headed my way. $11 still strikes me as a bit high, but hey, I know amazon's gotta make a buck too. This cable really does what it's supposed to - please, PLEASE don't be fooled by retail employees who push solid gold Huckster Cables at 10 times the cost.As for some details:I got this thing to display output from my XBox 360 on my computer monitor. If you're thinking of doing the same, please note that the XBox 360's proprietary "composite + component" cable is required for audio out when you're using an HDMI -> DVI cable. Using that cable, you can get either audio either from the optical or RCA plugs.There's one little snag, though - on my XBox 360, at least, the "composite + component" cable physically obstructs the HDMI port. There's just no way to plug both cables in at once.After googling around a bit, I learned that you could actually remove the plastic casing from the XBox cable and give yourself enough room. I did this, and everything works great. 5Turning In An Old Ford for a New MercedesCables Unlimited PCM-2296 HDMI to DVI D, I ve recently graduated to a flat screen monitor for my computer set-ups, and threw the years I ve learned the hard way, like many of you in computer world, never assume that you don t need some particular cable or adaptation . I replaced my old cathode tube monitor with an AMAZON.COM ACER Flat screen monitor, which is like turning in an old Ford for a new Mercedes, I didn t have to use the Cables Unlimited PCM-2296 HDMI to DVI D , but at the rate I m starting to upgrade to USB technology, I ll store away my PCM-2296 HDMI to DVI D for another day and some sought of upgrade I ll be dealing with in the future .and with computers, there s always a future. 5Cables Unlimited PCM-2296-06 HDMI to DVI D cordI purchased this cord to hook my Acer 20" monitor to my 11" ASUS Chromebook when needed. The cord works perfectly. I had forgotten how great my Acer monitor looked when I used it with the old desk top. I no longer use a desk top computer, only a Mac Book Pro and a Chromebook, but I definitely missed that big computer screen. Now I have it whenever I want to use it.Tip: Make sure you read the back of your monitor to ensure you are ordering the exact cord used in the monitor. It saves a lot of grief. There is a difference between DVI and DVI D. My monitor specifically said DVI D. I could also use VGA. 5Nice cable for HDMI to DVI for my PI.I needed an HDMI cable to connect from my Raspberry Pi to my old 22" monitor with only VGA and DVI inputs. I wanted to be able to setup the PI using a computer monitor and not hooked to my big screen TV as I was setting up the Debian Linux on the Pi to serve as a 'poor man's NAS' as well as a Kodi media player. This required hooking up and mounting several hard drives and modifying the Samba Config file as well as the /etc/fstab file, then installing Rsync and once that was working right, setting up a Crontab job to run a backup nightly.So, this cable arrived quickly, and did the job, connecting from the Pi's HDMI port to the monitor's DVI port. I was able to do all the configuration from my desk and once everything was working, move the PI to it's spot in the living room near the TV.The cable was cheap and effective for my purpose 5Does it's jobIt worked great when I plugged it in before realizing I didn't have 2 HDMI ports in my tower like I thought (I got a second monitor that didn't have an HDMI port and needed a cord to hook it up.) I don't know how well it holds up since I had to get a different cord type, but at least initially it's fine. 5NOT DVI-D SINGLE Link as picture shows!I bought this cable in November 2011 to utilize the HDMI output of my Roku2 to the DVI-D input on my TV. I love my Sony LCD, but being about 7 years old, it lacks HDMI. So, options for HD input are one DVI-D input and two Component connections. Since it is easy to use the Component on my cable box to input the HD programming to my TV, I figured I'd use this cable to connect the Roku2 for HD content. My TV calls for DVI-D SINGLE Link...apparently for a reason, since the cable that was sent by Cables Unlimited is NOT Single link and produced nothing but a black screen. While the description provided appears to be silent on the topic of whether the cable is Single or dual link, the picture show on Amazon CLEARLY shows the product to be a Single link DVI-D cable (there is a gap in the pins in the middle of the connector, as is the case with single link). Unfortunately, since I waited way too long to hook it up and realize the problem, I'm stuck with a completely useless cable. Most annoying, though, is that nearly a year later, Cables Unlimited is STILL showing a picture of a Single link cable on Amazon, when, in fact, the cable they send is dual link!!Update: I did just receive an actual HDMI to DVI-D Single link connector and that too just produced a blank screen. So, apparently the dual link nature of the cable I was sent was not the problem. Regardless, Cables Unlimited should be showing a picture of the cable they actually send (which is dual link). 3
