DVI connection Mac mini to Yamaha receiver


Aug 16, 2016
I want to connect my old (2007) Mac mini to the Yamaha receiver in my home cinema set up but the Mac only has a DVI connector coming out of it with an HDMI on the other end which plugs into the front panel of the Yamaha. This V-AUX connection is obviously not as good as proper HDMI so I wondered what I can do to ensure maximum resolution for the film files on my Mac.
DVI is basically HDMI without the audio. That cables does a pin conversion, I do not think it performs any cable-processing, the signal is passed straight. Anywhoo, you have no choice, your mini can only output DVI. Does it even have a expansion slot for you to add a proper HDMI out video card?
