DVI-D output means the box only outputs digital signal. On DVI-I means it outputs analog + digital out of the DVI output.
Both are convertable but while DVI-I takes a 3 dollar part, the DVI-D takes a part that costs several hundred dollars and not compatible with HDCP. Thanks.

As I don't think all of these have identical interfaces, maybe the switch, that reconstitute the signal helps. Regardless, for me it works.
owlbox said:Does anyone make these? Sounds like the monster cable I just received won't plug into the Voom box when it arrives on Mon. I don't see any mention of DVI-D on their site and the cable has the gap in the middle so it is DVI-I I guess. Crap, I'm hosed! So close but yet so far away.
Lem52 said:I just hooked up my connection from my Voom box via DVI cable. The dvi connection on the tv has a 24 pin input and a blade that goes in but there are 2 holes above and below the little blade. The cable I bought does not have those 4 pins to fit in there but the dvi works ok. Is this the right way to do it?
