DVI to HDMI and HDMI to DVI are they the same?

  Widow's Son 17:53 28 Dec 2007

I'm looking to connect my PC with a DVI connector to my monitor which has a HDMI connection. I'd tend to assume that these things aren't directional and so it wouldn't matter if I bought a DVI to HDMI or a HDMI to DVI lead.

Could some kind soul confirm or deny this?

Many thanks in anticipation.

Your logic seems sound to me. How come the monitor doesn't have a PC-specific port, though? Is it actually an HD TV?

I'm not really up to speed with these things - the monitor is a Hanns G HG216D 22-inch LCD display click here

I've found one which seems to do the trick and so have went ahead and ordered it from ebay

Thanks for your help
