Does your desktop computer need to be HDMI to be connected to the HDMI on tv. I went to local store for an HDMI cable but then the girl told me I had to buy an SVGA cable? as well as another if I didn't have an HDMI desktop computer, since I wasn't sure I didn't bother with buying any cable. Any help gratefully accepted. My computer is a Lenovo Windows 7 about 3-4 years old.

    If your computer has a VGA Cable slot instead, then your going to need to buy a converter. The issue is that you are trying to convert from an analog signal to a digital video signal. A cable can't do this, but a converter can.
  2. Thanks for your reply,can you tell me if this is what is needed. I need at least 3mtr cable and it shows below the cable "Frequently bought together" Would this be right? Its my TV thats HDMI and my desktop isn't. Thanks

    Your probably looking for something more like this:

    At least that's what I would order, or a similar product for that matter, maybe a better brand. All depends on what your looking to spend. But other than shipping costs the one I posted should be fine. Says it is.
