Can i connect monitor to hdtv with HDMI cable

I would like to connect my HDTV to my computer.
Problem is I do not have HDMI output on my desktop, but I have one on my monitor.
What will happen if I connect additional HDMI cable from HDMI socket on the monitor to HDTV?
Monitor will still be connected to my computer.
Thanks

  1. The HDMI on the monitor is only a input port not an output so no!
    You can use a cable like this from your card though http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=12-186-026&SortField=0&SummaryType=0&PageSize=10&SelectedRating=-1&VideoOnlyMark=False&IsFeedbackTab=true#scrollFullInfo presuming that you have a extra DVI connector.
  2. Thanks, that's what I was afraid.
    How to install HDMI output at the computer?
  3. What connectors do you have on the computer now?
    There is a possibility that you can upgrade GPU if need be.

  5. If it does have two DVI outputs (most do) you can use the cable I linked and connect to the HDMI on the TV, the only thing is it does not carry sound.

    It might do if a SPIDF connector is fitted.

    It is actually mentioned in one of the reviews of the cable from a user with GTS250.
