I need to change the HDMI output on my Pi to one from a desktop PC. The one from the pc has cables that I want to use. Can I just solder these cables where the original was?

    Without a technical description of the replacement connector, it would be very difficult to answer. Oct 23, 2012 at 2:04
  • At this moment there is no replacement connector, I don't yet know what to buy. The only requirement is that it is gonna be mounted in the back of a PC-Case. Any suggestions? Oct 23, 2012 at 2:07
  • What HDMI input?

  • @Jivings: I think the OP means output. hustlerinc: Then you would need the the technical description of the cable that you want to use. My suspicion now is that you want something like a short HDMI male-to-female extension cable with a panel mount on the female end and a PC case bracket that will accept that mount. No soldering would be required if that's the case (and if you can find such a thing). Oct 23, 2012 at 11:01
  • Yes Dennis you are correct, I meant the output, and I thought of what you're describing but having trouble finding it. If it exists I would be happy to order it from the moon even. Oct 23, 2012 at 15:55
