    Converting DVI to HDMI?

    Hi Guys,

    I recently posted in this forum, about outputting to an HDTV via my video card, while playing a Blu-Ray movie using a Blu-Ray reader in my computer. I had no replies about this yet.

    So, my next question is - My video card says it's HDTV ready (see the link http://www.gecube.com/products-detail.php?prod_cat_pid=9&prod_cat_id=141&prod_id=44728" but the only outputs on it are DVI, VGA, and S-Video (I know it says dual DVI on the website, but mine has one DVI, one VGA). How do I take advantage of this HDTV ready compatability? I did some reading, and a DVI to HDMI adapter does exist....so, I'm wondering, will this work?

    Second question - Regarding the audio from the Blu-Ray reader. Will it just play through my Creative 5.1 sound card (which is digital) just like a regular DVD does?

    Thanks for any help,

    jay

    I've checked in to this a little too and found that they make DVI to HDMI cables that don't need an adapter. It seems like this might be better as it eliminates the extra connection.

    No idea on the sound, I haven't tried this connection yet.
