    mini dvi to hdmi cable?
    I already have a hdmi cable so I was wondering if I could buy a mini dvi (male) to hdmi (female) cable instead of buying two new cords, a mini dvi to dvi and a dvi to hdmi. Has anyone else done this? thanks cody

    Perhaps I misunderstood that first post, but I don't think so.

    In any case, yes, you can buy one and there is a link for one in my first post.

    ??? No, it doesn't work. Sorry, they just sell them to rip off their customers. ???

    Specs:
    Way... way too many specs to list.
    make sure that the DVI's are compatible.. there are differing connections. My wife had a mini-display to DVI cable.. and we had a DVI to VGA cable... the two won't plug together because the DVI > VGA has 4 extra pins.
