    Default DVI cables question

    I have a external Waterproof monitor which is dvi-i connecting to a KVM extender which is dvi-d

    A dvi-i cable male to male wont suffice as it won't fit in the KVM end and a dvi-d cable won't suffice as it won't carry analogue input to the monitor (not that we are using analogue but would be nice to retain the functionality)

    Any ideas? Such a thing as a dvi-i to dvi-d cable?

    Yes of course but in terms of maintaining the functionality of analogue for the monitor input would require a dvi-i

    why would you want to be able to display via analog? unless the monitor is 20 years old and doesn't accept a digital input, and as said the kvm dont have analog output so i fail to see the need for analog ??

    and you say to maintain fuctionality ?? its just an analog way of displaying an image, to which digital replaced many years ago
