I am wondering if I can connect an Apple Cinema Display with a MiniDisplay port to an HDMI video card.


The short answer is yes.

It's not a common conversion (normally it's a DisplayPort to HDMI), but it can be done. To do so, you need an active adapter to go from HDMI to DispayPort because the signaling is completely different and needs to be recreated so it will work.

  • I'm not sure; you'll have to test. Generally, the conversion goes in the order described (source to output) and your link is "DisplayPort to HDMI". Conversion isn't (usually) bidirectional. You want to go HDMI (source) to DisplayPort (output) – Allan Jun 7 '18 at 14:29
