Video game consoles with DVI?[edit]

Although DVI is predominantly associated with computers, it is sometimes used in [...] video game consoles... Does any video game console natively output in DVI? The PS3, Xbox 360 (Post-Elite models), and all eighth-generation consoles can output HDMI, and the Dreamcast, PS2, and Xbox 360 have had first-party VGA cables; but none that I know of can output DVI without use of third-party adapters.

DVI not the only analog carrier anymore[edit]

With DisplayPort fairly widespread, the paragraph stating DVI is the only standard carrying both analog and digital should be revised (with a source), or removed. -wizzard2k (C-T-D) 15:53, 29 June 2016 (UTC)

DP is digital-only, requiring an active external RAMDAC, whereas DVI-I & DVI-A have pins that carry native analog signals. (talk) 21:05, 11 July 2016 (UTC)
The external thing would just be a DAC. It would have no need to store and look up items in a color palette; that's already been done by the time the bits come out of DP. Jeh (talk) 21:51, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

DVI should redirect to the Disambiguation page, not here[edit]

Obviously, there are a lot more things "DVI" can stand for. (talk) 20:54, 27 June 2017 (UTC)

At the top of the page, there is a link to the disambiguation page. (Where you can see those other uses.) Unless you believe that one of those uses is searched for often enough, this one should be fine. Gah4 (talk) 22:35, 27 June 2017 (UTC)
