connecting pc to tv ??

I have an ati x1950pro gfx card with 2 DVI out and a HDMI and I wanted to try connect it to my tv. Btw I have no idea how to do this and would appreciate help!

I have a normal TV not HD so would I be able to use the HDMI to connect it directly??

More about connecting
  1. That fact it's HDCP means you can't use it to do analog output. Buy a new HDTV instead
  2. Oh yeah your right :oops: Ill try that (cant now) as soon as I can
  3. GPUs typically have S-Video out as well.
  4. No i dont think so. It has 2 DVI outs and one HDCP
  5. I'm with jaguarskx, most cards have S-video, or a dongle that connects to a port on the card that allows a variety of connections. Which card do you have? You need an HDMI port on the TV to connect HDMI directly from the video card. Or you could find an adapter that would convert one of your ports to s-video or composite. Try one of these:

    I have to question whether you even know what an HDMI plug socket even looks like, I've researched both the 256mb version and the 512mb version of the ATI X1950PRO models, and both come with 2 DVI and 1 S-Video type connector which ATI uses as VIVO , and it will connect to a standard or analog TV with the various additional S-Video connector cables that ATI has additionally provided in the retail packaging.

    However!
    If you are right and your specific video card does come with an HDMI connector, on your ATI X1950PRO video card, please link me to the website that contains the information about your card, that ATI themselves don't seem to have a clue about, or the link to where you bought it. :wink:
