I have a Panasonic DMC TZ 40. I have been trying to view the jepg files on a monitor with a DVI input using a HDMI to DVI cable from the camera. All I get is message saying Digital input cannot display this video mode. Is there any way round this?

My monitor only has a DVI and VGA input - it is some years old now. I can connect a Nikon D300 Ok using the DVI to HDMI adaptor and view files.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
ok, but the camera is geared towards HDMI so this is going to be the issue.
There is a specific adapter for this but you have to get the one made for this camera, its this one.

As it uses the correct Pins for the camera. Is this the one you are using?

No it isn't, I'm using a generic cable - do Panasonic make a similar adaptor for their HDC-SD700 video camera I wonder - if so it looks as if I need to buy the correct cables.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
ok, you need to use there's truth be told, I am sure they did this on purpose.
But thats the most common reason for no signal.
For the HDC-SD700HDC-SD700 there is only mini HDMI to HDMI, as DVI was not a real popular format, especially for video.
I would advise for the cost of the adapters, to look at a cheap HDMI monitor instead as you will get better quality and it is more compatible with current products.

Many thanks for this - I suspected it would be a Panasonic issue - not the first time I've met one.
