HDMI to DVI Cables

The HDMI standard and its older cousin, DVI, are very closely related to one another. Both use the same methods of video encoding, and send video information down the same sort of cable structure. The HDMI spec requires that HDMI devices be backward-compatible with the DVI standard, which in theory (though, unfortunately, not always in practice) means that whenever you have a device with a DVI connection on it, an HDMI to DVI cable will give you a funtioning connection.

As with all standard-compatibility questions, there are a few caveats.

A Note on Limited Selection:

We've been in the process of phasing out HDMI-to-DVI cable for some time and are not reordering new stock, as the demand for this product has dropped sharply. If you don't find what you're looking for in our HDMI/DVI cables, consider using an adapter with an HDMI or DVI cable to make your connection. Barring unusual conditions or particularly long runs, this combination will almost always work just as well as a purpose-built HDMI/DVI cable.
