Here is a link to a web site that seems to do a good job of explaining the different DVI suffixes:

http://www.interfacebus.com/Design_Connector_Digital_Visual_Interface_DVI_Bus.html

They also have a page for HDMI that mentions the differences between the newer HDMI and older DVI standards:

http://www.interfacebus.com/HDMI_Pinout_Bus.html

The only references I can find for "DVI mm" are for DVI Male-to-Male cables that have male plugs on each end.

EDIT: As for HDMI <-> DVI converters, they usually consist of an HDMI and DVI-D wired together to pass single digital video channel DVI data from an HDMI source or to an HDMI input device.

I believe that should work pretty well the end result will be dvi-d out to hdmi into an lcd tv and running from my sound card to my stereo for audio both for the video and for music playback. :cool:
