It doesn't matter. Electrically they are the same. It's the same wires 
and same signals, just in differently shaped connectors. That's why the 
DVI-to-HDMI "converters" are really just plastic boxes with a bunch of 
criss-crossing wires. So if it works with DVI, it's got to work fine 
with HDMI too.

The only difference is that HDMI has additional wires to carry sound, 
along with image.
