Choosing video cables can be confusing these days because there are so many different types of cables available. In most cases, computers and entertainment systems can be connected with a DVI or HDMI connector. These connectors are the most widely used digital connectors today, and are compatible with one another. DVI is commonly seen on desktop computers and LCD monitors, but does not support HDCP by default so it is unable to facilitate the playing of HD content from certain sources. HDMI, on the other hand, serves as the default cable for newer video devices and computers and it is now regarded as the standard digital cable. Those who have hardware with only mini DVI ports can connect to a newer monitor with HDMI ports by using a mini DVI-to-HDMI converter.
Mini DVI-to-HDMI converters are very affordable and come in many different forms. Examples of mini DVI-to-HDMI converters that are available on the market include the mini DVI-to-HDMI female converter for Mac, two-metre mini DVI-to-HDMI cable converter for Mac and PC, mini 32-pin DVI-to-HDMI male/female HDTV monitor video converter, Thunderbolt mini DVI/HDMI/DisplayPort adapter and others. Ebay is one of the best places on the Internet to buy mini DVI-to-HDMI converters at bargain prices.
