Hi Mahi,

In Bangalore, SP Road is the best place to check out. But if you need branded ones, then you must check with some vendors before you go to SP Road. I havent checked on the DVI to HDMI since i dont have an HDTV right now.

I had recently purchased a DVI Male to Comp converter cable from SP Road for ~ 450/-

cheers
Prashant

Hello Reju,
yes I got that product from ebay website. A guy from delhi was selling that. DVI-I to HDMI adapter is bit difficult to locate.In my view DVI-D to HDMI adapter is sufficient we really don't need DVI-I.
Thanks,
Mahiruha.

Oh, I overlooked the "DVI-I". I don't think such converters are available. Only DVI-D to HDMI is possible as HDMI cannot handle any analogue signals.

Hello Reju,
DVI-I is available. The one I got is DVI-I to HDMI adapter. My relative is using Sharp PGF-320W projector and it has DVI-I connection. There is something called HDCP compliance. I am not sure if there is DVI-I connector with HDCP compliance and if we want to connect it using adapter then in order to comply with HDCP should we use DVI-I or DVI-D will also do the job.In my opinion theoritically DVI-D should do the job since we are transmitting digital signal. But not too sure about it.
Thanks,
Mahiruha.

Are you sure it is DVI-I??

DVI-I is for handling digital as well as analogue signals. But since HDMI handles only digital signals, what is the point of making DVD-I to HDMI adapters? They maybe just physical connectors without analogue function.

Have attached the pictures here:

* DVI-digital (DVI-D) is a digital-only format. It requires a video adapter with a DVI-D connection and a monitor with a DVI-D input. The connector contains 24 pins/receptacles in 3 rows of 8 plus a grounding slot for dual-link support. For single-link support, the connector contains 18 pins/receptacles.
* DVI-integrated (DVI-I) supports both digital and analog transmissions. This gives you the option to connect a monitor that accepts digital input or analog input. In addition to the pins/receptacles found on the DVI-D connector for digital support, a DVI-I connector has 4 additional pins/receptacles to carry an analog signal.
