Product ID: DVI2HD
This DVI to HDMI® adapter lets you connect your DVI laptop or desktop computer to an HDMI display or projector. The adapter works with any DVI output, but when you connect it to your Windows® computer, the adapter also supports native USB audio, allowing you to add your computer's audio to the HDMI output signal.
The DVI to HDMI adapter is easy to use. The adapter features plug-and-play installation, so you won't need to load or download any special software, ensuring a fast and easy installation. The adapter also features a small footprint, ensuring it discreetly blends into your desktop setup, unlike bulky DVI adapter boxes that take up a lot of desk space.
If you want to transmit video only, you can just use the DVI connection. If you want to transmit audio as well as video, you can also plug in the USB connector. With no external power adapter needed, you have everything that you need in one compact solution.
This adapter ensures that you're harnessing HD video quality from your DVI output, with support for resolutions up to 1080p.
The DVI2HD is backed by a StarTech.com 3-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

|quick install guide|
This device is plug and play. It does not use any drivers, and does not require any setup tasks other than plugging in the source (for example, a computer) and the destination (for example, a monitor).
When you troubleshoot issues with a video adapter, there are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential problems. You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:
Video source (such as a DVD player or computer)
Video destination (such as a monitor or projector)
To test your setup components, try the following:
Use the cable, video adapter, video source, and video destination in another setup to see if the problem is with the components or the setup.
Use a different cable, video adapter, video source, and video destination in your setup to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in another setup.
When you test your cables, it is recommended that you do the following:
Test each cable individually.
Use short cables when you are testing.
When you test the video source and video destination, it is recommended that you do the following:
Remove the video adapter from your setup and test to make sure that the video source and video destination work together without the video adapter.
Test to make sure that the video source and video destination work together at the resolution that you want to use.
Note: In order for your setup to work properly, the video source, adapter, and destination all need to support the resolution that you are using.
Try the following:
The error “Out of Range” normally means that the resolution being output by the computer is not compatible with the display. Try lowering the resolution to see if that helps resolve the issue. You may need to connect another monitor or restart the computer or source to accomplish this.
Digital Visual Interface (DVI) is a video display interface that can contain different types of signaling, based on the application. DVI cables and ports are created using different connector types to identify what application they are intended to be used in. The connector types are identified by the number of pins on the DVI connector. DVI comes in the following five different connector types:
Single and Dual link DVI indicate the maximum resolution capabilities of the video source or video destination. The maximum resolutions are Single Link (1920 x 1080 @ 60Hz) and Dual Link (2560 x 1600 @ 60Hz).
Note: The maximum resolution of your video source and video destination are ultimately determined by the technical specifications of the devices. The connector type is not a definitive indicator of the maximum resolution.
DVI-A carries only analog (for example, VGA) with no digital component. DVI-D carries only digital video (for example, HDMI) with no analog component. DVI-I combines DVI-A and DVI-D connections to include both analog and digital components. A DVI-I port may be on either your video source or display, but whether or not a display carries either or both analog and digital sources depends on the technical specifications of your device.
The DVI to HDMI adapter only converts from DVI to HDMI, which means that the DVI port must be the source and the HDMI port must be the destination.
