I have a raspberry Pi and I want it to display on my monitor. My monitor only supports DVI and the Pi supports only HDMI. I was wondering if there is a way I can connect my raspberry pi, via hdmi, to my pc and have it display on its screen.
Option 1) Get a cheep hdmi to dvi cable, they are electrically the same (except no sound on dvi).
Option 2) Use X11, to display windows from raspberry pi (running Raspbrian, or other X11 based Linux). Use
ssh -X to connect to raspberry Pi.
Option 3) Use VNC, to display whole screen, or a virtual screen.
(Options 2 and 3, require a network connection between the machines.)
You can use a HDMI to DVI adaptor. There is a cheap one here for £2.99 on amazon.
You can also connect directly to a computer using a crossover. This is just like a standard telephone cable but has an Ethernet connector at both ends. There is a cheap one here you can use.
