Hi, I recently purchased a Bravo D2 player and want to utilize the DVI connection but my Pioneer SD533HD only has the 15pin RGB connector. What can I do. Do I need a signal converter, will special cable work??

The RGB only displays 1080i >.I don't know what to do:please help confused:

You would need a few convertors to hook together since DVI is digital and VGA is analog. If your D2 can upscale on the component outs, use a transcoder like I mentioned in the linked post...

I don't know anything about the Bravo D2, but one thing you want to look at is whether the output on the unit is DVI-D or DVI-I. If it's true DVI-I, then the output is sending both the digital and analog versions of the signal out. In this case, it is a relatively simple matter to convert the analog (DVI-A) portion of this to RGB, without having to do any extra D/A conversion.

I'm pretty sure it's DVI-D only. The D2 might not be your best choice if your display doesn't have a DVI in, I've read mixed opinions about using component outs on it, maybe someone who has one can add to this...
