Does HDMI DVI transmit audio?
The TV speakers do not produce any sound when using a DVI-to-HDMI connection from a computer or other audio/video player device. DVI supports video signals only; it does not support audio. Therefore, the DVI-to-HDMI cable only provides the picture to the TV screen, but the TV speakers cannot output any sound.
How does a DVI to HDMI adapter work?
For example, if a cable box or PC has DVI out, but the TV or monitor only has HDMI in, a DVI-to-HDMI adapter cable is used to connect the video. The audio must be cabled separately as DVI transfers only video. The HDMI circuit detects the DVI signals and switches to the DVI protocol.
Does DVI to HDMI reduce quality?
As an example, the monitor I am using right now is connected using a DVI-HDMI adapter. I have 2 identical monitors setting next to it using strait HDMI cabling. The picture quality is exactly the same. So in short: No, DVI-HDMI conversion will not reduce quality.
