    i figured id get intelligent reponses here vs in the main forum so i have a question. i know you can get hdmi to dvi conversion cables, but can u go the other way around? (satellite has a dvi out, i wanna hook it into the hdmi port on the tv). would i be able to do this? obviosly id have to run separate wires for the audio.

    There is no conversion happening, so there is nothing to be lost. DVI and HDMI video use the same protocol and the same number of wires to transmit the signal, so the cable is simply an adapter, and the same cable can be used if the source outputs through DVI or HDMI.
