Video Connection Question-DVI

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My son is trying to set up a quasi HTPC with a new Radeon card (Don't know which one). It has (1) DVI-I and (1) DVI-D out put and he wants to feed a Samsung HDTV with HDMI and VGA inputs and a new but not high end monitor. I'm not sure what the monitor in is but I'm assuming either DVI-D or DVI-A but it could be VGA. Exactly how would you cable this? please let me know if you need more info.

Yes, HDMI and DVI can be converted using a simple cable adapter. DVI to VGA however cannot.

Before you invest very much in convertors, you might consider getting a $20 video card that already has HDMI and VGA outputs.

What new Radeon card did he get that doesn't have HDMI?
