I don't think there are any reasons. DVI and HDMI are the exact same thing, just different plug shapes. Get a cheap adaptor = problem solved.Okay. Can I still be angry that the Mac Pro still doesnt have HDMI? Can we talk about reasons that a professional user might need it in this thread?
No?Okay. Can I still be angry that the Mac Pro still doesnt have HDMI?
You might hook up to a TV to preview video output. But again, DVI and HDMI are the same thing. So consumer or professional, I really don't get what the deal is. I have a DVI-HDMI cable at home that was like $10.I don't get the HDMI complaints either. What "professional" uses are there for HDMI? And can't that be added on with third party hardware?
I've got a 30 inch Dell hooked up via dual-link DVI. Standard cable came with the monitor and the Mac Pro already had Dual-link DVI. I'm not sure if all the video cards come with Dual-Link, though.Since the Mac Pro still doesnt have HDMI (even the Mac Mini has it. What the hell Apple?), what do I need in order to connect it to a non Apple display?
Yeah, really you'd only want the Blackmagic card for input...I think HDMI is widely considered a consumer connection. Blackmagic makes a cheap HDMI i/o card, I think.
