I found a buffer made by TI (SN65LVDS100/101) which has a wide common mode
input range which should be able to receive the TMDS signal using DC
coupling. It also appears the output can be biased to 2.0V which is
compatible with the CML part I want to interface to. I think it could also
beused to go from CML to TMDS. What do you think?

using special receivers that can reverse the effect of ac-coupling (dc
offsetand pulse width distortion). Those receivers do exist out there. If
youuse ac-coupling caps with high enoguh value (in uF range) and if the
receiver has a low enough low frequency cut-off you can successfully
ac-couple your driver and receiver. Best regards. Hassan. On Jul 03, Joel

biasedto 3.3V into a part that uses CML levels that are biased to 2.0V.
