Connecting the video?

Post by derek »

I'm a little confused by the description of the video output, namely:

"DVI Digital output up to 1920 x 1200 through HDMI connector"

Is this just trying to tell me is that there is no audio in the HDMI signal?

What can I connect a fitPC2i to and using what kind of cable ...

* My TV, which has multiple HDMI inputs, using an HDMI cable of some description? (not supplied?)

* My monitor, which has a DVI input, using the supplied adapter? (which is a passive device that just adapts the plug?)

* A different monitor, which has only a VGA input, using a further adapter/converter of some description? Can I use any DVI-D to VGA signal converter? Or only the one mentioned on this web site which seems to adapt directly from HDMI to VGA?

Correct, there is no audio in the HDMI connector. Audio is a separate output with 5.1 S/PDIF.
You connect video either directly with a HDMI-cable or with the enclosed HDMI-DVI-D adapter.
For VGA you need the fit-VGA adapter that is an active converter.
