DVI

More delays in getting the development machine up and running. The new card arrived yesterday but the DVI to VGA adapter I have won’t fit in the new DVI port! Turns out there are 4 different varieties!

single-dvi[1] dual-dvi[1]

What I had before was a Dual Link DVI-I which supported adapting to VGA since it was analog/digital… the Dual Link DVI-D is purely digital and therefore doesn’t support analog adaptation to VGA anymore! So now I am on the hunt for a super long Dual Link DVI-D cable.

From what I am reading, the difference between Single and Dual Link has nothing to do with splitting into two discrete monitor signals – it has more to do with resolutions above HD requiring Dual Link.
