compliant with the EIA/CEA-861/861B standard and is not intended for use with
personal computers. If you want to connect a DVI-compatible device, you will
need an HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable. Since DVI does not carry audio signals, a
stereo audio input is provided for the HDMI input. In addition to the
HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable, you will also need stereo audio cables.
Note: The HDMI jack
will accept 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i signals.
