Re: HDMI, DVI standard, adaptability?
They are. HDMI is just a further development of DVI, using different
connectors and adding new features, but the digital frame format is
the same. A DVI signal can be displayed on a HDMI device without
problem, but the reverse is not necessarily true. Note that a HDMI
signal usually includes audio, and a DVI device cannot handle it. So,
when you have audio, you need a device to separate it out of the HDMI
(such a simple adapter won't do that) or use an alternate audio output
connector on the device (e.g. cinch).
