This cable is mostly used for connecting your Xbox 360, Playstation 3, DSTV HDPVR, Blu-ray player to a display with only DVI-D input and no HDMI inputs.

Plug cable from Output HDMI Female on HDMI Device to Input Female DVI-D on display. The cable is bi-directional and can also by used to connect your PC Graphics Card (DVI Output) to the HDMI Port on your HDMI display. The graphics card output needs to support DVI-D digital signals. Most Nvidia and ATI graphics cards support DVI-I which can autoswitch between DVI-D (Digital) and DVI-A (Analog).
