    Hey all!
    I'm getting tow of the apple 17" lcd.
    I know that they have only the adc port, I need to connect them to my computer.
    the only available ports that I got are VGA and HDMI
    I was thinking about the following combinations:
    VGA- to DVI- to ADC
    and
    HDMI- to DVI- to ADC
    will it work well for both?
    thanx alot,
    Roy.

    If you have the option stay with DVI and leave VGA out of the equation. :)

    Your HDMI-DVI to ADC will work, but you can't convert an analog VGA signal to a digital ADC using adapters. ADC is basically DVI with a slightly different pinout that also carries USB and power on the same cable.

    unfortunately I don't have the option to give up on the VGA. there's no way it's going to work? it's a secondary screen anyway, so the quality doesn't has to be a supreme one. the main one will be a 42" lcd, and it's taking the DVI output.
    even if I could get another dvi/hdmi, It won't help because the vga cable is built into the wall. (might be sound wired)
    thanx alot,
    Roy.
