Facts About Amazon Basics HDMI to DVI Adapter Cable, Black, 6 Feet, 1-Pack
Yes it should, but you should be supportive of your monitor’s life decisions.
I have used this cable both ways, so I would assume yes.
No this will not drive a 2560×1440 monitor via dual-link DVI. I have 2 LG 2560×1440 monitors that only have HDMI inputs and I have a graphics card that supports 2560+ using dual-link DVI. This cable does not work for this purpose.
Actually DVI can transfer audio, it apparently depends on your setup. But for me I can get audio with this connected to an AMD R9 200 series GPU to a LG LCD TV.
It works with my PI-3 and an old ASUS monitor with a port labeled DVI-D.
Are you trying to Connect the Xbox to a computer monitor? It should work, but if your audio comes out of speakers in your monitor, then you’ll probably have a problem with sound.

Not likely, you’ll have to check, but older Digital TVs like that usually have 2-6 HDMI ports, 1 or 2 HD Video inputs, an S-Video input, and a "PC" input (uses a VGA port, rather than DVI).
But if your TV has a DVI port, then yes, it will work.

Set cursor anywhere on opening screen and right klick on mouse. A window should pop up with list. Select "Display Settings".
The display setting window should pop up. This screen should show the two display monitors. Scroll down to "Multiple displays" and select "extend these displays". I think that will do it, but if not – play around on the Display setting screen.
it’s hooked up to an old Dell 4:3 TN display, so it’s old. My vision isn’t so great, and its difficult to connect to the due to lack of light at the connection, but my guess is that its ok. The link works fine.
I have not tried it but if you are connecting HDMI to DVI it should work.
I believe that it will! In my case I have an old hp micro tower and I installed a dell video card with DVI have it connected to my 20” monitor with HDMI! It should work the other way also! Good Luck 🙏🏻
Assuming one of them has a DVI-D connection and the other has an HDMI port, yes you can!
If the laptop has the appropriate video output (hdmi) , then yes. Also the screen needs to have a dvi-d compatible input. Remember to turn on 2nd monitor in display settings. They don’t usually just start working because u plugged everything in.

A fraction of the price of similar cables, this was solidly built, with very solid connectors. Worked perfectly to connect an older monitor with dvi to my laptop with hdmi out. No loss of image quality. If you have a slightly older monitor without an hdmi in, this is for you! I attached a picture of the female side your monitor will needs (it’s the universally brown one, NOT the blue one!)
First of all I really want to thank the community for answering my questions about this cord before I purchased it! It was really helpful to me! Okay so this cord is exactly what I needed to connect my desktop tower to my Sony smart tv. I plugged the DVI end into my computer and plugged the HDMI into the port on the TV and it worked perfect. The reason I needed this cord was because my computer doesn’t have HDMI and the TV only has HDMI. I have been trying out different VGA converter cords before trying the DVi, and none of them had worked at all. So I am very happy that this one finally worked! My computer runs windows 10, which I think is why the VGA cord wasn’t working. Perhaps something to do with a driver or something? Now the only thing is that this cord will NOT transfer sound. This is a video cable only. You will have to use either a aux cord directly to your tv or to an external speaker. But this cord does exactly as I was told by the community members as well as the description by the seller.
If you have found my review helpful, especially if you are in the same situation, please let me know.
Exactly what I needed to add a 3rd display to my son’s gaming PC. The graphics card on the PC has HDMI, VGA, and DVI outputs. I used this cable to connect my LG HDTV for use as an overhead display.
I have four Acer 22-inch monitors, and the 16:10 aspect ratio (1680×1050 res) never did work well with the VGA ports on any video card I’ve used. The monitors automatically and correctly pick native resolution whenever data runs through the monitor’s DVI port, whether from DVI output from the computer, or via an HDMI-to-DVI or DisplayPort-to-DVI cable.
Besides the OEM video card on my home computer (which supports DVI, HDMI and VGA outputs), I installed a Radeon HD5450 PCIe1x which I also purchased from Amazon (DVI, DisplayPort and VGA outputs). Great card, by the way.
This cable was the answer for my monitor on the far left, now fed by the resident card and its HDMI ouput. I removed the VGA-to-VGA cable, installed this HDMI-to-DVI cable, and back to native resolution and proper color table selection.
The Hong Kong skyline stretching from left to right on my four monitors now looks great!
First off – the scenario: I have a PC with dual DVI-D outputs that I needed to connect to HP E222 monitors, neither of which have DVI-D interfaces. The active DVI to DP option is quite expensive and the VGA option has a little distortion that is barely noticeable but can be a bit bothersome. This cable takes the DVI-D output and converts it to a HDMI signal so you can use any monitor with HDMI input. Note that audio isn’t supported, which won’t matter on most monitors. These work well for my needs. I’d like to try them in reverse and hook up something like a Raspberry PI to an old LCD monitor to see how/if it works.
For great quality If you want to connect your computer to your TV and your computer uses a DVI video card. I attach a picture of the different type of DVI’s ports, so look carefully at which one you have on your video card and the cable you are buying.
After the battery on my previous Dell laptop started swelling, I received a new Dell with the dual USB-C Lightning connector. My previous Dell used the older docking station that I dropped the laptop on. I have a newer Dell monitor with HDMI that hooked up just fine into one of the HDMI ports on the new Lighting docking port, but I also had an older HP monitor that did not have HDMI and only VGA and DVI connectors. The docking station had neither a VGA nor a DVI connector, but I knew that the new laptop didn’t like working with VGA monitors (my home setup made that clear) so I thought I would try this HDMI to DVI adapter cable. I was able to plug the HDMI end into the second port on the docking station and the DVI end into the HP monitor and it worked. Nothing fancy, but functional.
Used to connect an older HP monitor to a laptop so I could extend my screen space. Worked perfectly.
If you are required to ZOOM or Video Conference frequently, I highly recommend 2 screens, as you can see the Zoom application on its own screen. This is especially helpful when you have to conference with large groups of people.
What I like:
— 3′ ft is a great length. $1 more I could have gotten the 6′ ft version but that’s just more cord I to wind up and not needed for my little set up.
— Gold-plated connectors, screen quality looks great
— Quality of the cord seems quite good!
— Price. Good value for what I paid!
No CONS at the moment but if anything comes up, I will be sure to update everyone.
I hope this review you out!
I had an older junk PC in my garage that hasn’t been in use for years. My kids have started to learn to use a computer at school and my wife said it would probably be a good time to get them their own computer. I started doing research and figured out instead of paying a couple hundred dollars for a new PC, I could just re-purpose this garage one. Luckily around that time, my work was disposing of older PC hardware and in that stash were several 22″ monitors. I grabbed one since I had everything else for the kids’ PC.
Unfortunately to my dismay, the LCD monitor was so new, it only had HDMI & Display Port ports. There was no DVI, no VGA like old school monitors! The PC on the other hand, was so old it only had a DVI video port on it.
Now from past experience, I knew you could get dongles that convert from one type to another but I’ve never liked them. These were back in the day when you had a DVI-to-VGI converter dongle. Dongles in general are clunky and can get bumped occasionally (which could cause damage to your connectors), so after a bit of research, I found that there are actual cables that have the conversions built-in, saving you space!
This cable works exactly as advertised and I had no problems getting the video from the old PC to new monitor. Plus it was cheap and the same price as a dongle. So win-win for me and now my kids have a functional PC.
This was perfect for me as it allow me to setup both my desktop and laptop to use my external monitor. The HDMI cable output for the monitor is already being occupied by the desktop as my desktop doesn’t have VGA connection and I needed a hdmi cable for my docking station but the monitor only has one hdmi connection so this was perfect as I was able to connect this to the docking station as my laptop only have C connection. Now I can sit at my desk and use my laptop with my monitor whenever I like. The picture quality is just like you’d expect from a HDMI connection with no distortion.
