View Full Version : My mini-DVI adapter just came in the mail

Mini-DVI to full-size DVI, that is, for use on my 20" iMac. Now, I'm wondering: Should I get a second display, such as an ACD, Eizo, LG, etc., or go for a smaller HDTV and connect to it with a DVI-to-HDMI adapter cable? With the second option, obviously, I'd be able to watch TV too, which would be handy. Just throwin' it out there. :cool: :apple:

I'm not quite sure what you want to do.

Are you wanting to use the iMac and watch videos at the same time, or do you also have a need for serious color work given the grade of monitors listed? :confused:

in my experience, you'd be better off getting a tv with a VGA input if you go that route, you're able to drive the panel at it's native resolution, instead of using of the TV standards.
