am i to assume that if i purchase a simple adapter from, say Belkin, for 40 dollars and subsequently purchase a 'Bot dv8tr for 150 dollars I will be able to connnect my pre(1 month)-DVI out 667 TiBook to the current 22-inch Apple Flat Panel Display (ADC)? Anyone out there that can help on this? Sure appreciate any feedback, it looks like my only other option is something from Geffen(?) which is hear is 400 dollars?

Get this Belkin adapter and then the DVI to ADC adapter from Apple. I say Apple, since if ANYTHING goes wrong with it, and connecting to the screen, your ass is covered. You also can be assured that the components inside of the DVI to ADC adapter will function 100% with the Apple screen.

Any more questions???

BTW, I'd rather send my money to Apple then any other place, especially since the DVI to ADC adapter costs the same from both.

yeah, i looked at that belkin adapter for 36 dols. i would really prefer this in a 3 foot length to get the "octopusssss" closer to the floor? i wonder. is the geffen supposed to provide a better signal or something. i mean, it can't cost 2 hun to put the two together and paint it white?? i plugged my old bondi blue 15 apple flat display from a few years ago in earlier today and it is dim and blurry. i'm in total agreement with your statements regarding getting the 8tr from apple. i had apple studio display software for the old 15 inch flat panel running under 9. i think it gave me a few more rez options, or maybe i have it confused with my old roadrocket. anyway, i don't want to get stuck and not have it work properly. by the way my firewire port blew out 2 months after i got the book. still waiting to send it back for that one... something has me thinking there is going to be a price drop on the 22 in a couple weeks?? thanks for the help!

The adapter AlphaTech suggests is DVI to VGA, not the other way around. For the pre-DVI TiPBs, you need a VGA to DVI. The only one I've seen is from Geffen.

Actually [bonehead] IF you selected the link you will see that it connects to the VGA port on the computer and provides a DVI connection for the DVIator, or Apple DVI to ADC adapter. Video cards have a female VGA connection on them, the adapter has a male connection.

See attached image. :rolleyes:

Doesn't work that way, numbskull. You out to quit being so arrogant. People will get annoyed with you (and already have).

Oh, and Alpha, you sound quite immature with your language and attitudes to be a technician. I'd reckon you're in Junior High, maybe 9th grade. Bet you don't even have an iBook, let alone your TiPB configuration you brag about.

Listen up buddy... it DOES work that way. You DON'T have to go out and blow $400 when you can do the exact same thing for under $200.

BTW, even Apple says it will work, so get with the program. :rolleyes:
