Pros: It is a DVI to component adapter

Cons: Make sure that you need a DVI-I, because sometimes you have a DVI-D female which will not fit into the male DVI-I

Other: If you are trying to hook up a mac to an HDTV, and you have a mini-DVI to DVI converter, the DVI port on that converter is a female DVI-D and was forced to buy a DVI-D to DVI-I converter

1080i max resolution

Pros: Good for ATI only

Cons: Need a list of supported cards!

Other: Just FYI - this will pass through a 1080i max signal through and ATI 3850 (AGP) card. You'll need the proprietary DVI to HDMI adaptor to get the full 1080p signal. Sewell Note: A list of supported cards is difficult to compile because compatibility is dependent on the card manufacturers, not just the chipset. We know which ATI and Nvidia chipsets support component over DVI, however you must contact your card manufacturer to find if your particular card enables the feature.

This small litte device neatly and cleaning covers DVI to Component and give you a choice of aspect ratio. What's to day, DVI in and component out. Better yet if the DVI comes from a HDMI to DVI converter.

Question:

Will this work to connect my GeForce FX5500 (with DVI output) to a HDTV via component cables?


Answer:

This adapter will only work with video cards that natively support outputting a component (YPbPr) signal through the DVI port. Unfortunately, we do not have a list of which video cards do or don't support that. To find out if your video card supports that, you would need to call the manufacturer of your video card and ask them. If they do tell you that your video card can do it, this should work just fine with your video card.

Question:

Will this work to connect my PS3 to HP LP2065 monitor?


Answer:

I'm afraid that it will not work. This is designed to connect a (compatible) computer graphics card to a component display. If your HP monitor is HDCP compliant you could use an HDMI to DVI cable.
