DVD Recorder Connections
High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is a digital connection that is able to carry High Definition (HD) content in both visual and audio format. It's one lead for all components of a program at the highest quality. A HDMI cable will keep a digital signal right up to the display on the TV.
Digital Virtual Interface (DVI) works in a similar manner to the HDMI connection in that it carrys HD content digitally. However a DVI connection only carries picture and not audio. It is therefore unpractical for normal television or movie watching but has more use with connecting a TV to a PC or camera to display the picture.
