Connecting computer monitor HDMI > DVI

I have a HDMI to DVI adapter connected to a computer monitor but the Playbook does not show as connected.

Re: Connecting computer monitor HDMI > DVI

For the Playbook you will require a micro-HDMI cable. The output of this cable is HDMI for an HDMI monitor or TV, and not for DVI. To go from the HDMI to another system such as DVI, I believe you would need an active converter.
