Basic Information


To use this cable, just connect one end to a video source, then connect the other end to a display.

Audio Support

DVI-D cables can carry audio when both the DVI source and DVI display are able to accept an HDMI signal through the port connected to the DVI cable. In DVI ports that do not support HDMI signalling, legacy DVI signalling will be used and audio will not be passed. This is not a cable issue, and is due to the DVI standard and the lack of HDMI support on the connected devices.

PCs (Windows, Mac, Linux) connected to this cable may need to be manually set to pass audio to the connected display. If you don’t hear audio immediately after connecting the cable, check the audio preferences of the PC and make sure the correct audio output is chosen.


This is a passive Single-Link adapter cable. Single-Link cables are capable of resolutions up to 1920x1200 at 60Hz. This cable does not support 4K at 60Hz. If you experience problems, please ensure that the signal being passed through the cable is within the capabilities of Single-Link DVI-D.

This cable is not compatible with DVI-A devices or passive VGA to DVI adapters. Such devices are only able to provide an analog signal, and HDMI technology only supports digital signals.
