From what I can find the DMS-59 port does NOT include audio. HDMI does include audio. So, your idea will not provide a total solution. I believe the major difference between DVI & HDMI is that audio is incorporated in the same cable.

Do you know how to use google?

EDIT: after seeing the remark below & the other responses, I realize I should have explained why I chose what I did. DMS-59 doesn't include audio so adapting to HDMI is pointless unless it's the only possible way to connect the monitor.

The same principle applies. A simple Google search will answer your question. (The answer is "Yes".)

Here's a hint: You can use more than one adapter at a time.

Thanks Razor 2.3. I couldn't find a DMS-59 to HDMI directly anywhere so i'll just have to purchase the DMS-59 to DVI then another adapter from DVI to HDMI.

So I guess the answer to my question is no.


Thanks,

There's a few other differences. They have different upper bounds for resolution, HDMI supports more color spaces, HDMI can control compatible devices, HDMI is still evolving, etc. Basically, HDMI is updated whenever a new fad is pushed on the home A/V market, whereas everyone's been pretty happy with DVI's capabilities. What we end up with is one standard attempting to do everything under the sun, and one standard content to push pictures at resolutions we all like, using colors PCs like. If high DPI displays ever take off on PCs, we'll probably move to HDMI and pay $10 a cable.

#5 Direct adaptors do exist according to Google. There's little point in giving a link to a supplier without knowing where the OP lives.

I haven't seen them, and my Google gives me DMS-59 -> DVI and DVI -> HDMI adapters when I search for "DMS-59 to HDMI."

Still won't transfer audio. ATI used to use DMS-59 to VGA. I still had to patch cable the sound. DVI single or double doesn't include sound.

We need to know what inputs are available on the OPs TV.

Well, the OP could also be feeding the sound into an external sound system. Then he doesn't need audio on the HDMI. This obviously calls for a road trip to the OP's house, were we can all gather to discuss the proper configuration of adapters and wires.

#12 agreed. You can't magic signals that a port doesn't provide. But audio wasn't part of the question (obviously, as there is no audio input).
