Can I connect my console to my apple cinema display?

May 9, 2008


XBOX 360 and PS3 both supply a HDMI signal.

Apple’s cinema displays only accept a digital DVI signal.

There is no way to convert the HDMI signal from xbox into a DVI signal.

One company (forget which one) sold a special HDMI-to-DVI converter box for a bit, but they’re no longer selling it and aren’t intending to start selling something like it again.

If you’re buying a LCD computer display, buy one that has a HDMI input, or at least composite or VGA.

(figured I’d put this out here since it’s the 2nd time someone asked me, and I remember being really frustrated when I couldn’t get it to work)

    i found similar product!.
    How think about it? it is cheaper than US product. but it does not support audio. if you want,
    but i’m not sure it is best choice or not.

    Hmmm… are you sure??
    I have “heard” that digital-DVI is basically HDMI without the digital-audio signal… so an adapter just need to cris-cross the wires, see link below:

    No I am not completely sure. I do know that the dvi-to-hdmi connector that I bought didn’t work. But, I couldn’t find a detailed HDMI spec, so this is based on the material I did find, and other reports found across the web.
