    There are two alternatives:

    1. Use the DVI-D output with an adapter cable to HDMI.(Cheapest solution).

    2. Install a PCI-E Graphics Card with HDMI output. Examples have been mentioned.

    Turns out I had one of those after all. Works fine.

    Any difference in performance/reliability as the HDMI cable?

    No there is not as long as the cable is not damaged.

    if the cable is not absolutely flush, with the slightest movement of the cable or the computer, it loses contact,
    I gave the port a squeeze with needlenose pliers, fits more snugly now.

    No, you seem to be using 1920 x 1080 which is quite modest, well within the specs.

    Electrically DVI and HDMI are the same for video. All the adapter has to do wire up each end differently. The only real difference is that DVI doesn't support audio while HDMI does. That means if the monitor or TV you connect has speakers then to use them you would have to run a separate audio cable from the computer.

    How did you accomplish that?

    All I did was replace the HDMI with the DVI. TV/monitor has speakers. Audio works. No separate audio cable.

    Did I miss something that will cause a problem elsewhere with some part of the operation?

    With needlenose pliers, how else? took the mobo out of the case, and squeezed the top and bottom of the hdmi port together a tiny bit. The bottom bit has a split and will bend up a little.Took a few attempts to get it just right. It is bit fiddly getting one jaw of the plier underneath the bottom lip. If pushed too far, it can be bent out again. Or if there is obvious gap where the bottom bit has separated, squeeze the sides together.
