    I need a DVI cable to hookup my HD tuner to my PJ. The tuner has a DVI-D connection, the PJ has a DVI-I connection. It's not quite clear to me which type of cable I need.

    Do I just get a DVI-D on both ends? I looked for a "mixed" cable on BlueJeansCable but didn't anything that looked like it would work.

    What exactly should I be looking for?

    Thanks!

    A DVI-D cable would be fine. The "I" portion is for analog which you will not be using.

    I have DVI-I from my Bravo D1 but I had to buy an adaptor to get the "I" cable to work with my HD tuner. I should have bought the "D" cable in the first place. You get longer runs for a bit less money.

    Thanks for the info. I thought that might work but I wasn't sure the DVI-D connector would fit into the DVI-I slot since flat pin seems to be a different size.
