Male is the plug that goes into the Female which is the port. So you stick the male into the female like…you know.

If you get a Male DVI to Male HDMI you should be fine.

The more expensives cables have gold connectors and shielding and all this other crap. The picture quality with my $10 generic HDMI cables looks the same as with a $100 Monster cable. Digital is digital, is doesn’t matter how it gets from one end to the other, as long as it gets there.

Hope that helps.
