Finding kneeling down in front of the family telly a bit of a pain, so seeking recommendations on a good (ie. proven to work with the Pi ) HDMI to DVI convertor/cable

Saw this one suggested elsewhere: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Premium-HDMI-Ca ... 794&sr=8-1 which seems a great price but no confirmation it works with a Pi.

Any recommendations please?

i bought a randon one off ebay and works fine
afaik a hdmi-dvi cable is just a passive adapter with connecting adjacent pins of hdmi to dvi, so all of them should work just fine

Basically everything should work, from the $0.01 eBay to the $30.99 (they really do try to charge that much) at a local home theater store.

I got three from here: www.ebay.co.uk/itm/170807807138 (£2.15 each, free p&p)

No problems. Arrived very quickly.

Just remember to set the right things in config.txt in case your monitor doesn't talk to the pi at the right moment (my monitors don't). See http://elinux.org/RPi_config.txt

hdmi_force_hotplug=1
hdmi_drive=1
