DVI-I to HDMI .....

[ Edited ]
Product Name: Prodesk 400 G1
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

Hi everyone.

I am about to buy a Prodesk 400 G1 as a little under-the-tv box.
It has a DVI-I socket.

1. Will a DVI-I to HDMI cable do the trick for the sound? Or do I have to buy a DVI-I to HDMI converter?

2. Also, my screen is 1366 x 768 and I don't see the resolutions in the Spec sheet. Will it auto fit the screen?

Thanks in advance

3. I know it maybe a bit overkill, but is it possible that a Xeon E3 would go in there?

Double edit:
4. The 8200 elite has a display port. Would a display port to hdmi cable deliver the pictuer and sound to theTV?


Reason? The 8200 USFF and the 400 G1, I can't decide which one to get

Re: DVI-I to HDMI .....

An HDMI-to-HDMI connection is the only way to transmit BOTH audio & video.


Presumably, the computer you are considering has stereo-audio output, and your TV has "RCA" inputs.

See: jpg

for the adapter cable that you can use, together with a DVI-to-DVI or DVI-to-HDMI cable.

You'll have to program the TV to "listen" to the RCA inputs, rather than the sound-component of the HDMI-input.


For "under-the-platform" boxes, take a look at:


It has HDMI-output, and wireless capability, and has no (noisy) fans.


Prices are in CDN dollars (multiply by 0.75 to convert to US).
