DVI Video + Digital Coaxial and Digital Optical Audio to HDMI® Converter
Connect a legacy HD video device or your computer's video and audio output to an HDMI-equipped HDTV using this DVI Video + Digital Coaxial and Digital Optical Audio to HDMI® Converter from Monoprice!
Before the nearly universal adoption of HDMI, many HD devices were released with a DVI video output. Additionally, many computer video cards are equipped with DVI outputs, instead of HDMI. This adapter allows you to combine the video signal from a DVI video source with either a Digital Coaxial or Digital Optical Audio output into an HDMI audio/video signal for use with an HDTV or HDMI-equipped AV receiver.

The picture is beautiful, allowing for 1080p as long as the card supports it (mine actually does and for being as old as it is....) Depending upon your cards driver it is very easy to change. The connection speed of your internet will dictate the choppiness of the playback. I think the site you are viewing has a lot to do with it too. I have a broadband 786Kb cable connection, and it is very good playback, most of the time. Seems when the site server (hulu or syfy have heavy traffic, it gets choppy. AGAIN, not the fault of the converter!
Overall, this is a GREAT way to get video and audio into an HDMI and into your HDTV Set. Mine is on a 30 ft HDMI cable, and the picture is better than cable, when the net is fast. Excellent picture, just choppy when it is not. Playback of recorded video from the hard drive or the DVD player is awesome. Once again, Thank You MonoPrice!!! Well done at a GREAT price. And no, I was not payed to write this review, and yes I do own and payed for the device myself! It just made me this happy.
