Today I purchased a really nice 23" cinema display on craigslist. It is the older non aluminum model, but in perfect condition, the guy even left the isight camera on it. It was $100 total, so I thought it was a good deal. Once I got home and attempted to hook it up to my g5 imac to replace my tired 17 inch monitor, I discovered the connector was dvi. I saw it at the guys house, but didn't think it would be an issue to get an inexpensive adapter on ebay. I googled my situation, and I found a few people saying it isn't possible. As I was browsing adapters, I see that I can get a DVi to vga and then a vga to mini vga. This in theory will get the connections correct, but my question is will it actually work? The issue I am not able to figure out is if the analog output of the G5 iMac can be converted to the digital input of the cinema display. If it isn't possible, I have 2 options. I can use it for an external monitor for my macbooks, or bring it back to the seller who told me that would be fine if I wasn't able to get the connections wrong. I don't mind spending the money on the adapters. It will be about $10.00 total, and that is a gamble I am willing to take. What I don't want to gamble with is the iMac or the monitor. Will one or the other suffer damage by hooking it up with 2 adapters? Do any of you know anyone that has tried it? I am using the screen spanning doctor firmware currently, and it works great. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Clint By the way, my imac is a 20" 1.8ghz ppc G5 2gig ram if that helps.
