Connecting ROKU LT to DVI-D TV Input

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I am searching for an adapter or cable to connect the HDMI output of a ROKU LT to a Magnavox 26MF605W TV with a DVD-D input. The image below shows the configuration of the DVD-D input on the TV. My problem is that I can not find a male DVI-D connector that matches.
In the TV User Guide the diagram of the DVI connector shows a horizontal flat pin while on the TV it is vertical. Any help with this is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Thanks, joed. I have checked Monoprice and every other source on the Internet I could find and do not see anything that matches the configuration of the DVI-D output on my TV. Even the user manual rear panel diagram shows a horizontal ground bar. It's like it doesn't exist...

Zman. I've looked around and can't find anything. Stange indeed!
Why not try to call a Magnavox service center listed in the manual.

Great idea - I'll do that. And thanks for looking!

The large pin is the analog ground used when the connector has a VGA signal on it. The Roku or any HDMI source doesn't have use the analog pins so you should be OK by just cutting the large pin off and use the cable or adapter without it. Here is a link to an HDMI to DVI wiring pinout: http://pinouts.ru/VideoCables/hdmi_dvi_cable_pinout.shtml

John - thanks so much for your input! It will be a few weeks before I'll be back at the location where this TV is but I'll try your suggestion and report back.

How does one cut the offending parts without damaging the necessary parts?

He is asking about the large wide pin. I think it could be grabbed with needle nose pliers and yanked out. The four pins around it are also for analog signals so if they are present and damaged there is no harm done. I have an HDMI to DVI adapter that does not have any pins near the wide pin.

Correct. Although I won't be able to get to the TV in question for a few weeks, I was able to easily pull it out with a needle nose pliers and reinsert it without any apparent damage to the connector.
