    I am rejigging my office setup so that i can run 2 PCs more easily with the 2 port KVM received from @Fingers66 today.

    The KVM has fixed output cables and the video connection is DVI-D male.

    My 4th gen NUC has either a mini HDMI or mini DP connection.

    I have an HDMI to mini HDMI cable, so was looking for a female DVI to female HDMI adaptor, but they don't seem to exist. Seems no one else is mad enough to need that particular adaptation.

    I could use a DVI to male HDMI connector from stock and buy an HDMI coupler or Startech do a mini DP to DVI female adaptor cable.

    If there are better ways to go, do let me know.

    Assuming the NUC's mini-DP port is a DP++ port and supports HDMI alt mode (probably yes, every manufacturer sucks at labelling DP++ ports as such), This should do the trick.

    Bought the HDMI coupler today and came home to find the Dell 2xWPC had arrived in the post. For some unknown reason I had it in my head that it was mini DP to DVI...
    Anyway, I have just fired it up and it works a treat.

    Thank you again @lancer778544 , it's an invaluable item for all owners of NUCs with mini HDMI sockets :clap:
