Last question before purchase, about monitor or tv connection

Ok so I'm getting the asrock z68 pro3-m mobo

It has hdmi and dvi connections. lots of people on forums are saying their PC won't boot with hdmi in, so if this is a new build... Can I get away running it on my LCD tv through hdmi to set it all up and do the bios (there's also a combo hdmi/dvi port but I dunno how that works)

Or would I need to buy a monitor?

I have this tv (I know it's cheap lol)
