How to Convert HDMI to DVI-D

Updated March 23, 2017

DVI-D is Digital Video Interface where "D" stands for true digital video (versus DVI-Analog). This technology is mostly used to connect computer video cards to LCD monitors. HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is the latest digital multimedia standard that supports both video and 8-channel audio with a single cable. Connection of a computer video card (DVI-D) to a TV HDMI input requires a conversion of these video signals. It can be done either with an HDMI to DVI-D cable or an HDMI male to DVI-D female converter.

Acquire a PCM-2296-06 or Link Depot HDMI to DVI Cable from an online retailer (see Resources).

Plug the HDMI connector of the cable into the HDMI port.

Plug the DVI-D connector of the cable into the DVI-D port.

Acquire an HDMI male to DVI-D female converter from an online retailer (see Resources).

Plug the HDMI male end of the converter into the HDMI port.

Plug one end of the DVI-D to DVI-D cable into the DVI-D female end of the converter.

Plug the second end of the DVI-D to DVI-D cable into the DVI-D port.
