    I have been trying to find an DVI to HDMI cable for my Powerbook. I keep finding cables listed as DVI-D or M or I. I have done searches and not found any real information on the difrence between them. I want to know if it matters or which one i should be looking for. THANKS

    "DVI-I" stands for "DVI-Integrated" and supports both digital and analog. In other words it works with both digital and traditional monitors. "DVI-D" stands for "DVI-Digital" and supports digital transfers only.

    I think "M" is a proprietary connection. Don't know anything about it.

    So does it really matter what i buy since its going from my mac (DVI) to the LCD TV (HDMI)?

    Thanks for the help
