DisplayPort to HDMI adapter

2008-10-27, 2:41 AM

I'm planning on connecting my W500 to my Sony KDL-40V2500 LCD television. Is there any advantage to using a DP cable and a male HDMI to female DP adapter, verses, a male DP to female HDMI adapter and using my existing HDMI cables? I would rather use the second option because it would be cheaper, plus I'm not sure if they make a male HDMI to female DP adapter.

 

Also, please post any websites that sell these adapters (your searching skills might be better than mine). I have only been able to find a few....Monoprice, Startech, Wal-Mart is now selling one.

Who did you end up buying the adaptor from? How much was it?

I haven't bought one yet. So far the prices I've seen have been between $13 and $30.

 

Here are the sites I found so far: Monoprice, Startech, Performance-PC, Wal-Mart, HD-PL+s

I had a Display port adaptor and try to connect to HDMI TV, I discover only screen had been transfer into the LCD TV. But there was no sound been transfer into LCD TV. I thought HDMI & display port are both digital. But somehow, the audio signal can not be transfer into HDMI while it's been convert.
