Re: DVI / HDMI adaptor

Thu Mar 08, 2012 10:17 pm

Apologies if this topic has already been covered.... but has anyone found a source of a cheap HDMI/DVI adaptor.

I have found the following two links:-


http://www.msy.com.au/product......uctId=6814
http://au.element14.com/multic.....dp/1428272

unfortunately the price is much the same as the whole pi:-(

your thoughts appreciated.

regards

Greg

ahhh. have already found something better. have a look at http://www.msy.com.au/Parts/PARTS.pdf and then search for "HDMI to DVI".

the adaptor cable is only AUD 6 - more or less USD 6.

msy is my local, no-frills computer shop. basically a warehouse that provides what you specify.

For people not familiar with places to purchase said item, NCIX and Newegg in USA and Canada are a good source.

NCIX for Canadians/Americans:

NewEgg:

(NewEgg's cheaper though!)

Don't use an adaptor use a cable, HDMI plug to DVI Plug. Using an adaptor will put significant extra strain on the HDMI socket on the RPi!

e.g. like the one we sell at:http://cjemicros.co.uk/micros/.....VI-D-CBL1M

n.b. I should be lowering the price when we get our next batch in next week!
