    I have a Rev A Macbook Air with Micro DVI out. With the Micro DVI to DVI-D Dual Link. I am trying to find an adapter from DVI Male to HDMI Female to run to my HDTV. The only adapter that I have found is DVI-D Single Link:

    Does anyone who knows more about DVI than I do know if this will work?

    I'm nearly certain that the adapter you linked will work. To my knowledge a dual-link DVI port can accept a single-link cable, otherwise you'd be unable to plug a smaller monitor into your newer graphics card without an adapter, which is definitely not true. And even a "full" 1080p TV doesn't require dual-link as far as I know.

    Depending on what cables you've already got, note that you can also get a DVI-HDMI cable to bypass the adapter entirely. I have a 15' long one that has no trouble running my TV at 1080p off a new mini or old MBP.
