The introduction of the HDMI interface represents an improvement in cabling technology. Thanks to HDMI, you can transfer both audio and video signals through a single cable, reducing the unsightly tangle of wires behind your audio/visual equipment. If you are trying to connect an HDMI-enabled device to an older device with a VGA port, use a converter box to hook up the HDMI cables to the VGA port. While HDMI can carry both audio and video, VGA ports only carry video feeds.
