I have a laptop with an HDMI 1.4 output. I awaiting delivery of a monitor that may have a DVI-D input (the Ebay description said DVI-D in one place and HDMI in another). I need a cable to connect them.
My understanding is that DVI-D and HDMI ports are always female and that the video standards are the same. So am I right in thinking that I can buy any male-male cable/adapter advertised as either DVI-D to HDMI or HDMI to DVI-D?
For example, this AmazonBasics cable says that it "adapts a DVI-D output to an HDMI input", as though it is unidirectional. Is that just a misunderstanding or is it possibly correct?
The monitor probably doesn't have audio, so I am only worried about the video connection.
