Difference in 25 pin dvi and 19 pin dvi

Hi
Can someone tell me the difference between the 2 DVI connectors, one with 19 pins, the other with 25 pins. I just got a HDMI DVD player, but have a DVI television. When I hooked it up, using a HDMI to DVI cable, I get a pink picture. I noticed the DVI on the T.V. had 25 pins, so I bought that adapter. Should I return it for the one with only 19 pins? I know it must be the cable or T.V. because my cablebox has HDMI, and that hooked to the T.V. also shows a pink picture.
Thanks for any response

SOURCE: HDMI to DVI Cable

I had a similar issue, try adjusting the advanced settings on the DVD player.....I can't recall which settings it should be on, but when I adjusted them on my upconverting DVD player everything worked fine after.

SOURCE: DVI alert, Your HD tv does not support HDCP,

Antipiracy warning , cannot be disabled or bypassed, it's a part of your tv. Because of it you will not be able to use the DVI connector to view blu-ray movies. You will have to use the Component (YPbPr) ones , at a much lower image quality.

Hi i am looking for vga cable 9 Pin Female to 15 Pin Female thanks


The 9-pin port on your PC tower is NOT a video port, it is a serial data port. All VGA connectors are 15-pin. Hooking up to the 9-pin port will not get you a picture. There should be a VGA port on the PC, or else a DVI an/or HDMI port. You can get DVI-to-VGA adapters that work, but only if the DVI port is an analog DVI, not if it is a digital DVI (DVI-D or DVI-DD).

I need to connect a VGA dell monitor my Toshiba Laptop


HDMI is digital
VGA (the 15 pin connector) is analog.
If your connector has the digital to analog interface it should work, but likely it does not have that chip and thus will not work.

Your description of the problem tells me it may never work as you have it connected. Possibly it might be that the monitor is required to be powered on before the laptop is booted, but that only works in some cases.

I have also seen some work if a 2-step connector is used.
VGA to DVI connector, followed by DVI to HDMI connector.
DVI was the step toward digital that came before the HDMI standard was implemented and was only partially digital. DVI and VGA do not carry control signals nor audio. HDMI carries both those as well as the video.

YMMV but I think it would be cheaper and more efficient to actually purchase a monitor with a digital input (HDMI or DVI).
Without the digital/analog converter interface a digital output device (your laptop with HDMI out) can never operate an analog device (your Dell monitor with VGA input).

A blue display box continually pops up with Input Select D sub DVI. I am thinking it is something to do with the monitor. What is wrong?


This monitor has two types of video inputs, a 15 pin VGA D-sub connector and a DVI connector.
If the video card has a 15 pin D-Sub then connect the video cable to the 15 pin D-Sub connector on the monitor.
If the video connectors are DVI then connect the video card and monitor with a DVI video cable.
You will also need to configure the monitor for either the D-Sub or DVI video input.

How can i use dvi port


DVI stands for (D)igital (V)ideo (I)nterface.

DVI is a new form of video interface technology made to maximize the quality of flat panel LCD monitors and high-end video graphics cards. It is a replacement for the P&D Plug & Display standard.

you can connect high definition monitor , LCD projector , LCD T.V to a DVI port

There three kind of DVI connector
1. DVI-D (Digital)
2. DVI-A (Analog)
3. DVI-I (Integrated Digital/Analog)

DVI-D format is used for direct digital connections between source video (namely, video cards) and digital LCD (or rare CRD) monitors

DVI-A - High-Res Analog
DVI-A format is used to carry a DVI signal to an analog display, such as a CRD monitor or and HDTV

DVI-I - The Best of Both Worlds
DVI-I format is an integrated cable which is capable of transmitting either a digital-to-digital signal or an analog-to-analog signal, but it will not work transmitting a digital-to-analog or analog-to-digital signal.


How to Recognize These three types of DVI Cable
There are two variables in every DVI connector cable, and each represents one characteristic.

The flat pin on one side denotes whether the cable is digital or analog:
A flat pin with four surrounding pins is either DVI-I or DVI-A
A flat pin alone denotes DVI-D

The pinsets vary depending on whether or not the cable is single- or dual-link:
A solid 27-pin set (rows of 8) for a dual- link cable
Two separated 9-pin sets (rows of 6) for a single-link cable

All my wires in my monitor r unhooked where they go can you tell me.


If your wires are unhooked, Usually new monitors wires are colour coded , for example, blue to blue, yellow to yellow etc.
If your wires are not colour coded, There is only one way the wires can go, They won't fit just anywhere. If they fit into one connector, then that will be where it needs to go.

Hope this helps

Dvi port specification


The DVI [Digital Visual Interface] is a standard for high-speed, high-resolution digital displays.
Below is a 24 Pin DVI Female connector seen at the Computer. The connector diagram and pin-out table show a DVI-I Digital and Analog [RGB]; 29 pins [modified D style] connector. A DVI-D Digital only connector with 24 pins [modified D style] looks about the same with out the 4 analog 'C' pins.

The DVI interface is found on a number of devices including TVs, Computers, Monitors, and Video cards.
Digital Visual Interface [DVI] was developed by the Digital Display Working Group (DDWG).
Note that the Digital Display Working Group disbanded around 2006, so don't expect an up-grade for DVI.

Digital Video Broadcasting/Digital Audio-Visual Council (DVB/DAVIC),
developed by DAVIC [inactive] and DVB [dvb.org].
Adopted by European Telecommunication Standards Institute (ETSI) and
International Telecommunication Union (ITU)
DVI has a number of different types connectors:
DVI-D Digital only connector; 24 pins [modified D style];
DVI-A Analog only; [modified D style], I don't think this is part of the standard
DVI-I Digital and Analog [RGB]; 29 pins [modified D style]
DFP Digital Flat Panel, Digital only connector. Pinout is listed on the DFP page

Most of the Widescreen monitors come with DVI as well as VGA connector. A VGA connector and DVI connectors are different in many aspects. First of all the DVI connector would be white in color and VGA would be blue.
VGA connector has 15 pins and DVI has 24 +1 pin

2232bw samsung DVI in problem


There is nothing broken, but you must become aware of the different standards in DVI connectors.

1)DVI-D which you have, does not have the 4 analog control pins around the alpha bar meaning it only works on digital devices.

2)DVI-A only has the 4 control pins and no bar, as well as a total of only 9-10 pins altogether. This is designed for analog only, and rarely see it anymore.

3)DVI-I stands for Interlaced, meaning it can work both ways, but will not fit in monitors that are set up for DVI-D because the analog pin sockets do not exist.

You can get more detailed by counting the pins in the rectangular area, if you use all 24 pins you have what is called a Dual-Link cable, so it can support resolutions over 1920x1280 if you have about 9 pins missing it is single-link and is limited resolution.
