DVI stands for Digital Video Interface.

It's a connection standard for televisions, projectors, and computer monitors.

The DVI is a multi-pin connector, like you would use to connect a printer to a computer. It is made for carrying high-resolution video signals.

DVI- Digital (DVI-D) Supports digital display only. DVI- Integrated (DVI- I) Supports both digital and analog display By Joseph Julius (man from Mpwapwa- Tanzania)

HDMI is superior to DVI, but if you use it with an HDMI-to-DVI adapter I believe the quality is limited to the DVI quality (unfortunately I've never had a monitor or TV with an HDMI input, so I've only used HDMI with an HDMI-to-DVI adapter).

You will need a DVI cable. Note that DVI can be a digital signal, an analog signal or both. Look in the manuals the see which the computer and monitor support. It is normally digital, which might be referred to as DVI-D. If analog is supported, it will be called a DVI-A. A DVI connection that carries both will be called a DVI-I. If you find you have a choice, use the digital signal rather than the analog.

Yes. You can use a DVI 24 plus 5 in a DVI 24 plus 1 port.

Use mini dvi to vga adaptor or a mini dvi to dvi adaptor for a Mac Mini with Mini DVI port.

Yes will work the same as HDMI, just DVI will not carry audio. DVI is capable of 1080p

The advantages of Dvi is that its a digital signal and its so widely used.

Depends on if you have a DVI compatible monitor and video card. DVI is considered better than VGA.

With a DVI to VGA lead one can link DVI and VGA devices. For example one could link a computer through its DVI output to a monitor with VGA input. One can buy them from Amazon.

One may find mini DVI to DVI adapters at the store "Tiger Direct". This retailer is nice because they allow customers to shop online and have physical stores as well.

No. HDMI to DVI uses a DVI-D or DVI-I connection and is digital, but a DVI to VGA uses a DVI-I or DVI-A and is analog. The best way to connect a PS3 to a projector is to see if the projector support component video through the VGA input using a VGA to component pigtail adapter. The projector might have even come with one. You then need to purchase a PS3 component video cable. This will allow resolutions up to 1080i (if your projector support it).

This monitor does support DVI outputs.

It depends on video card. If you don't have DVI slot then you will have to get a female VGA to male DVI adaptor. the DvI would then go to M1 and connect at projector.

Use the DVI port. You can use a dvi cable, vga cable (using the dvi adapter that came with your computer), or a DVI to HDMI cable. Just plug the cable into the computer and the tv and your Mac will do the rest.

There are many options for connecting a computer to a television. The following are five different cables that can be used: HDMI, DVI-1 (singe link), DVI-1(dual link), DVI-D (single link), DVI-D(double link), and DVI-A.

Digital visual interface (DVI) is used for high-resolution digital displays. A DVI connector can be used to connect your computer to your TV.

You can buy a DVI to VGA adapter.

Dual-link means that you can have a higher resulotion then with a single-link cable, but you can still use a single-link DVI cable in a dual-link DVI output.What you'll need is a single-link DVI-D or a single-link DVI-I cable!

Well, there isn't really a difference in what the DVI cable does its the way the pins are layed out. You get 4 different types:DVI-D (digital only)DVI-A (analog only)DVI-I (integrated, digital & analog)M1-DA (integrated, digital, analog & USB)The way you define these is by the pin layout, each pin is labled 1 - 24 and then you get 4 C pins that make the cross.Thus, DVI-D is commonly used for connecting computers to TV's, LCD monitors or projectors, but when buying these cables, the pins will only fall into the places needed making these very easy cables to install because no matter what DVI cable you buy they will always connect to the DVI port you have.

No it is to be connected to a TV, not a computer monitor

DVI is the digital display standard for computer displays, so it is indeed a monitor cable. DVI provides similar resolutions to analog VGA cables when running LCD panels at their native resolution and normally avoid timing errors that can reduce the clarity of VGA signals in some cases. DVI can also support analog VGA signals on the same cable so before changing to a DVI cable make sure your monitor and computer both support DVI digital.

use an hdmi cable and you should be able to find an hdmi to dvi adapter for about $30.
