"They were the only business that had exactly what I wanted at a reasonable price. It shipped immediately and works well."

Overview

This adapter takes your DVI signal and displays it simlutaneously on a VGA and a DVI monitor. It works as both a DVI to VGA straight-through adapter and a splitter allowing you to use a VGA monitor and a DVI monitor simultaneously.

Note:

Your DVI source must be DVI-I and capable of simultaneous digital and analog output. Very few video cards are capable of this.

But for most users, This cable does not mirror an image on two displays. It allows you to have two displays connected to one source (i.e. projector and monitor) and to use one display or the other without having to connect or disconnect the cables which can lead to connector stress damage.

If your DVI signal is DVI-D (digital), you must use the Gefen DVI to VGA conversion box.

Question:

Is this cable fully connected dual link cable? We need few hundred dual link splitter cables.


Answer:

This cable is dual link, and the DVI side of the split maintains all of the original DVI-I pins found on the original DVI.

Question:

We have a Nvidia 8800 GTX card and both DVI ports are being used. Can we used this splitter to support a third vga display (to be cloned to plasma screen) in addition to the two DVI displays. Thanks.


Answer:

I am afraid that will not work. Your video card will only output either the VGA or the DVI signal, but not both simultaneously. You could get an external video adatper like the SW-8769

Question:

I have planned to use my mac mini with this splitter to use it normally with my dell monitor OR watch films in my old tv through another adapter from the VGA port to s-video. Will it work? Thanks in advance.


Answer:

That will work for you as long as only one display is on at a time. (Note however that many displays go into a standby mode, rather than powering off from the power mode, which might not allow them to switch)
