WTB - mini-DVI to HDMI adaptor in NZ

Discussion in 'Video Hardware' started by Jamie Kahn Genet, Nov 3, 2011.

  1. Anyone know where to buy a mini-DVI to HDMI adaptor in NZ for a
    reasonable price? I can only find the mini-DVI to DVI-D one.

    TIA,
    Jamie Kahn Genet

    I was surprised to find several listings (for the same manufacturer:
    8ware), given they are only useful on older Mac models.

    If you don't want to muck around with TradeMe, I buy most of my locally
    sourced computer bits from Ascent. Here is their listing:

    http://www.ascent.co.nz/productspecification.aspx?ItemID=393702

    Ascent's pricing is structured to include freight, so if you order two
    or more of the same item at once, you save on the freight costs for the
    extra ones.

    They are quite cheap and reliable.

    Why is it necessary to have the HDMI? The advantage to HDMI is it
    carries video AND audio but the mini-DVI port only sends the video.

    You would need another wire to carry the audio. Why not just use a
    mini-DVI to DVI or VGA?

    While Apple doesn't make them, the Apple stores sell some Belkin ones.

  6. Because the monitor I want has HDMI input only.

  7. Yeah, I like Ascent too, but for some reason my search on their site
    failed... what did I do wrong the day before? *scratches head* Well,
    never mind. That's exactly what I want for exactly the right price.
    Cheers David! You're a great regular to have here.

    FWIW one of my local websites I use to source kit occasionally burps. One
    day it told me that they didn't supply any Firewire drives at all; the
    next day it was fine.

  11. I worked it out - searching on 'mini-DVI MDMI' results in no hits on
    Ascent. But 'mini DVI HDMI' does. Silly.

  12. then you'll need a mini-DVI to HDMI adaptor, not a DVI to HDMI adaptor.
    Apple doesn't sell one, but Google should be able to help you; just search
    for "mini dvi to hdmi"

  14. My apologies; in reading the message, I totally blanked out on "mini-".
    Chalk it up to my having a senior moment or five.
