Hdmi > Dvi-D Installation

Question

I noticed alot of topics concerning this very issue because not many lcd monitors dont have hdmi inputs, which is the concern for many of us with a budget.

 

But, has this been finally resolved? Can a Hdmi - Dvi-D cable or Adapter be a possible solution to the output issue or is this something that the Roxio is not capable of encoding properly?

It can work.

 

If all the components are HDCP compatible then I think it can work.

If one isn't then I think there is a problem with the handshake that HDMI tries for.

 

You will probably get other answers but this is what I think

Assuming your Monitor has DVI-D, yes, it will work!

It will not work with a monitor that only has VGA input unless you add a Converter into the mix ;)

Yes, i noticed my monitor has a DVI-D input, so I will see for myself this week if it can be done or if i have to manually set up the source without problems. I realized a Roxio is more versatile than a PVR 2 and a El Gato, so I really hope this wont be a troubling issue to confront

Unfortunately this method did not work with my monitor, i tested out the cables without the device and the picture did pass by without failure, guess its by design the device does have a strict decoding capability :/

Im sure adapters work, however in this case the monitors with specific source options like the ones Jim displayed will have to be the ones used, otherwise, the best bet is to just haggle cheap hdmi capable monitors on craiglist :/

actually my monitor has a VGA :P so if i buy a vga to dvi adapter like this one

and then buy a component to dvi like this one

will it work?

I Really, Really, Really doubt it!

 

Your VGA to DVI is a DVI-A, not the DVI-D that most use...

 

Generally speaking you have to have a converter to get to VGA! For that you will spend about $50 ;) Weigh that against the price of a HD Monitor or TV...

 

If anyone actually knows how to get a conventional TV or VGA Monitor to run from a Component or HDMI please post!

if anyone knows how to make it work on this without spending more than 30$ please help :/

Do you even have a Roxio GameCAP HD???

 

All you have is Game Console, a PC and One Monitor with limited Input... (right so far?)

 

WHAT outputs do you have on your Video Card???

About that Y Splitter, wouldnt the connection still be disrupted by the Roxio even if you had to still use a HDMI > DVI-D converter adapter in the process?

 

That is my setup. I receive video, audio isn't working but I think that's on my end. Something might be wrong. You plug the HDMI in the splitter, then the DVI on the back of your monitor or where ever. Then the HDMI cables from the splitter, to the roxio game cap. Then the roxio usb to your laptop. I really don't know why my audio doesn't work, this was a problem before I got this. So it's not from the splitter.
