    Interesting - So you are sending your DVI output to Air? Or what will the final product be?

    We used Scan converters to air PC screens all the time - But that was VGA.

    I just did a google search for Scan Converter - This is probabbly what you want. More expensive than the adapter, but much better quality - These are some from Markertek:

    If you were going to use the signal for a quick-and-dirty hookup to a monitor just for yucks, I'd say use the adapter - But it looks like you have a more professional application in mind.

    So you wanted Video out, not just your "desktop" out. Yeah, the adapter would never have done that correctly.

    Blackmagic is a reputable company but I've never used their products. There are a ton of other companies that do that - I personally uses AJA.
