HDMI to DVI Cable
HDMI Cable - 1 Meter HDMI to DVI Single-Link Cable
HDMI to DVI cables are the best way to connect HDMI devices to DVI equipment and vice versa while maintaining a high quality signal. The most common application for this cable is to connect a computer to a high definition display. HDMI to DVI cables provide equal quality high-definition resolutions as regular HDMI to HDMI cables. These cables are capable of resolutions up to 1080P.
- Connects HDMI devices to DVI devices
- Connector A: HDMI Male
- Connector B: DVI-D Single-link Male
- Gold plated plugs
- Plug protection cap
- Resolution up to 1080p
- HDMI spec: V1.4

Please note that DVI does not support audio. A separate audio cable will need to be run if needed.
Q: What is HDMI?
A: High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is a fully digital audio and video interface. HDMI brings the highest quality video to your home theater. Since HDMI supports both audio and video it simplifies wiring significantly.
Q: What is HDMI with ethernet?
A: The 'with Ethernet' option allows a device that has Internet access to share that connection with another device that isn't directly connected to the Internet. For instance you could have a TV connected directly to the internet then use the HDMI cable with Ethernet to share that internet connection with your Blu-Ray player. Please keep in mind both devices must be Ethernet Sharing compatible for this feature to work. The HDMI with Ethernet cable will still perform normally for HDTV even if an Ethernet signal is not present.
Q: Is HDMI backwards compatible with previous versions?
A: Yes HDMI is fully backwards compatible.
Q: What are the advantages of using HDMI over S-Video or component?
A: The quality of audio and video increases significantly. Images and sounds will be sharper and defined. These benefits are clearly seen ar resolutions like 1080p.
Q: What does the jacket rating CL2 CM and CMP mean?
- CL2 is the standard type of PVC jacket used for low voltage cable. CL2 rated cables are often referred to as in-wall rated cables and can be run almost anywhere except plenums. CL2 is more common for non-professional use.
- CM is standard comminications cabling that is not run in walls or in plenum air spaces.
- CMP is a rating that is given to cables that have passed a stringent burn test and are able to be run through plenum air spaces. Plenum air spaces include drop ceilings and non-ducted HVAC air returns.
Q: What is DVI?
A: DVI stands for Digital Visual Interface. DVI was developed by the industry body DDWG (the Data Display Working Group) to send digital or analog information from a computer to a display such as a flat-panel LCD monitor.
Q: What is the difference between DVI-A DVI-D and DVI-I?
- DVI-A – The “A IN stands for analog which it supports analog DVI signal
- DVI-D – The “D IN stands for digital which it supports digital DVI signal
- DVI-I – The “I IN stands for intergraded which it supports both analog and digital DVI signals
Q: What is the difference between dual link and single link?
A: DVI sends a digital signal between devices. A single link cable sends one at a time while a dual link can send two. This effectively allows double the data flow and allows such benefits like larger screen resolutions
