8800gtx dvi

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Are the two dvi ports on the evga 8800gtx solely for outputs, or can they be used as inputs?
The reason I ask is that I am trying to hook up my 360 to my monitor. I bought this:

Will this work? How can I change from the comp on the screen to the 360 on the screen? I have the adapter I bought plugged into my video card and my 360 to my adapter.

The two DVI ports are output only. Your converter will work if you connected directly to your lcd, however if you only have one DVI port on your lcd you will need a DVI switch. If your LCD has DVI and VGA then you could buy the VGA cable kit for the 360, and just use the LCD menu and select input source.

Yeah there would be really no point in hooking up the 360 to a PC anyway cuz the PC just goes straight back to the monitor. When you set stuff like this up, you always want as few things in the middle as possible, the shortest route from point A to point B. In your case, point A is the 360 and point B is the monitor, so you should just link those two together

the problem is on the adapter. around the flat connector of the dvi end there are four pins. my monitor does not have these pins, my graphics card is the only thing that has them. can I just tear out those four small pins without hurting the adapter in order to fit the adapter in my monitor?

Ah, i am having the exact same problem:
http://www.overclock.net/monitors-di...i-d-dvi-i.html

My Apple adapter supports only DVI-D (DVI-Digital only; doesn't have the 4 pins that support analog), and everything else i have supports DVI-I (DVI-Integrated, has 4 pins for carrying analog too).

So far i have been without luck in finding a D to I converter. My best solution was to get these two:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16812202024
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814998202

This would allow me to connect the cable to my latop via DVI-D and then give me picture on my TV via HDMI. Then if i wanted to use a computer monitor (either VGA or DVI) then i could use that converter to go from HDMI to DVI-I (and if i wanted VGA i have a DVI-I converter).

This solution was too expensive, so i ditched it. I'm just gonna settle for VGA.

As for the plan to cut off the 4 analog pins, i read somewhere else that people have done it successfully, but for some reason, the flat pin is already too big for my female DVI-D connector, meaning that even if i cut the 4, it isn't going to be big enough anyway. But others have reported success in doing so, so i don't know.

I'm as annoyed as you are; why isn't there a simple DVI-D to DVI-I converter? I'm not gonna use the analog; i just want it to fit.

Good luck in finding a solution

if you want your Xbox on your PC, get a TV Tuner card.

I don't want it on my pc I just want to hook up my 360 to my monitor and was wondering if that adapter will work if I fold or break the four pins?

It is the DVI-I (Dual Link) and my Sammy Monitor has a DVI-D input.

pic attached. (sorry for the bad resolution, pic is from my phone)

Will I damage the adapter by messing with those four little pins?
