I have used a micro-HDMI to HDMI adapter cable, to a standard HDMI-HDMI cable, to an HDMI to DVI adapter, and it worked fine for me. This is with my particular combination of adapters, cables and monitor, and while it "should just work" as jamesh said, reality doesn't always cooperate.
I was using a Monoprice brand micro-HDMI adapter cable
and Ultra Slim Series HDMI cable
, along with a couple of DVI-HDMI adapters I've had kicking around for years. One of the DVI adapters is a generic one I probably got from eBay
, the other was a Monster Cables brand adapter that was given to me.
So multiple adapters can work, but it's still best to avoid them if possible.
My mind is like a browser. 27 tabs are open, 9 aren't responding,
lots of pop-ups...and where is that annoying music coming from?
