An HDMI to DVI cable converts 19 pin HDMI to single link DVI-D, the cable is bi-directional so can convert from DVI to HDMI as well. A common issue with this cable is that it gives a picture but no sound, this is because the DVI connection normally only supports video as the name suggests, Digital Visual Interface. To get sound with an HDMI to DVI cable a separate audio cable is required. We say normally only supports video as there some exceptions, for example some PC video cards support DVI Audio and these will provide audio from the DVI connector which can be adapted to HDMI, in general though unless you are specifically using a DVI Audio enabled device you should assume you need a separate audio cable.
