Yeha that may be the best thing to do since DVI can be re-wired into HDMI with just an adapter/cable, as opposed to a VGA cable which to my knowledge, you would need a converter box.Right now I have a VGA monitor connected to my PMG5 via a DVI converter so technically I could buy a DVI to HDMI and hook it directly to the Power Mac
I have the stock GE Force FX 5200 and I might do that since I use my tv for my Xbox and I also use the PMG5 at the same time the I could use dual displaysWhat video card do you have?
I'm using a 6800 Ultra, which has dual DVI outs. I just have a DVI-HDMI cable running from the computer to my TV. HDMI and DVI use the same signal protocol-the difference is that HDMI-obviously-uses a different connector and also supports sound. Thus, the cable is passive.
All G5 Cards(or at least the Mac edition ones) I'm aware of have either dual DVI or DVI+ADC. ADC is really DVI with extra connectors for power and USB, so again a passive adapter can be used to turn an ADC port into a DVI port. Then, run a DVI-HDMI cable to your TV.
Thaws what I was planning to do, I was using the vga stuff as an example for the adapter I boughtYou are going to want to go from DVI to HDMI rather than VGA to HDMI.
