Call me unknowing, but how do you go from digital to analog with just a cable? Or does DVI also output the analog? HDMI does not, right?

I'm again going to have to stress Monoprice for this type of thing. Item 3868 would get you a 2 foot adapter with shipping included for under $6. They have great quality and sell stuff like this far cheaper than I've found anywhere else (except maybe eBay, though that can obviously be a hit or miss ordeal).

I appreciate the advice.... I agree that Monoprice is a great place to get cables on the cheep. But at the moment I don't have a spare penny (after food, gas, rent and diapers). BUT I do have a boatload of cables and connecters.

Any-For-who That is where I stand

That was my immediate reaction, but if you click the link Mike provided you’ll find this info:


Basic features of DVI interface are:
* Lossless (digital) transmission of video signal
* Display hardware independence
* Plug and play capabilities (EDID and DDC2B)
* Digital and analog support in a single connector
