I/O interface-related FAQs

The DisplayPort output can be converted to HDMI or DVI by an additional, passive adapter cable. For example:

  • DELOCK 82590: 1 m, DisplayPort (male, 20p) to HDMI-A (male, 19p)
  • DELOCK 82435: 5 m, DisplayPort (male, 20p) to DVI-D (male, 24p)

The integrated graphics automatically detects the connected display and puts out the appropriate electric signal - either through DisplayPort (without an adapter) or HDMI/DVI (with an adapter). However, a monitor with a DisplayPort connector cannot be connected to the HDMI port with a simple, passive adapter.

The S/PDIF output provides multi-channel audio as a digital signal (via optical or electrical interface). Present Shuttle products don't have an S/PDIF output anymore, since they provide digital audio via onboard video outputs (HDMI or DisplayPort). The advantage of this is only one cable for transferring video and audio signals is required. If you need an S/PDIF output, you may use an affordable HDMI-to-S/PDIF converter that separates the digital audio signal from the HDMI combined stream, while still the HDMI video signal can be used.
