I am getting ready to order the new Dell Inspiron 14z Ultrabook for a family member. Her LCD is DVI-D only, and the Ultrabook is HDMI only.
It looks as though I have a choice of converter boxes, converter cables, and converter adapters. I'm looking at either a cable or adapter. Some cables say bi-directional, others do not. None of the adapters say bi-directional.
So, do I need bi-directional, and if not would a cable or adapter only be better?
What did you end up getting and how did you get it to work?
I have an Asus notebook pc laptop with only 1 HDMI slot.
And a DEL 24" DVI-D PC Monitor.
I tried buying a small adapter:
DVI-I Female to HDMI male plug it into the HDMI on yhe Asus laptop and plus the DVI-D cable of the monitor to the adapter.
But it seems my pc doesn't recognize the screen.
What should I do exactly?
