Could a problem arise?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys

looking at a new screen, its perfect only one problem:
its only has a VGA in and 2x HDMI in, I currently have a GTX 570 which only has DVI so im wondering if its possible i would get driver issues using a DVI to HDMI converter, or has anyone had issues before?

You shouldn't have any problems at all. It will just cut the sound out, unfortunately. But no, since they are both digital signals, things should run smoothly. I've not heard of any horror stories involving a converter.

Yeah but most people use Headsets (gamers in any case) or speaker systems plugging into USB or the integrated sound ports.


And OP, No you shouldn't have problems. In my experience though, my screen looks better via VGA then HDMI. Though I run an LG 32" LCD HDTV as my main, maybe that's why, but everything is sooooo bright (not in a good way) IE black is actually grey.

Is your new screen a HDTV (as opposed to a Computer Monitor)?
I speculate it is because it is hard to find a monitor without at least one DVI input.

The answer to your question is 'No & Yes':

'No': connecting your card's DVI output (via an adapter) to a HDMI input of your new screen does not cause a problem by itself. Video signal from your card will just go through.

'Yes': using a HDMI input of a HDTV will often (but not always) trigger the 'Overscan/Underscan' phenomena. However, this can be easily corrected by using your HDTV's built-in features. If this does not, then you can fix it via the NVCP.

(BTW, I wonder which Inno3D GTX570 do you have? I have one myself and it has two DVIs and one mini-HDMI output. But of course, even if you use a mini-HDMI-to-HDMI adapter, it could still trigger the Overscan/Underscan phenomena.)

thanks, Im actually not using a HDTV but im buying the Samsung syncmaster BX2450 (the perfect monitor for my needs) but for some reason those samsung engineers hooked it up with VGA and 2x HDMI, which to me seems stupid as opposed to a DVI + 2x HDMI but they include a DVI to HDMI adapter so i dont care as long it doesnt effect me in any way.

btw, my 570 also has two dvi ports and a mini hdmi, should i use a mini hdmi to hdmi converter instead? carries audio?
