Hello,

I already did this once while waiting for my monitior. Now I connected the same cable again to the same system as I am now using my TV as a monitor and it wont work. I tried both DVI outs on my PC as well as both HDMI connections on my TV. I am lost.

What do you mean by "won't work?" Blank TV?

Have you connected the TV and then rebooted?

Is that TV a single monitor? When you say you did this once, did that converter work with a monitor but does not work with the TV? Use the TV as a secondary monitor so you can see what's going on, and check display properties to see if it's detected.

Are you switching the input selection on the TV to the right port?

I am using the Nvidia GeForce 6150SE nForce 430.
I have A DVI to HDMI cable. I have rebbooted computer with TV on and off.
The VGA works and the computer dings when it is connected or disconnected.
Nothing happens when I do the same thing with the DVI/HDMI cable.
I have opened the Nvidia control panel and found nothing that pertains to dvi outs.
Also I have upgraded to the latest drivers for this card and still nothing.
The TV reads "No Signal"
I have tried both dvi outs on computer and have verified that both hdmi ports are functional on TV.
I hope this helps in figuring out issue. Thank you for responding.

Sounds like you already checked a lot of things. How about a different cable?

you did not state whether or not you changed inputs on your television. this could very well be the culprit as if its looking at the wrong source it will always say "no signal".

Hello, at wits end here. I've got my ps3 I'm trying to run on my Phillips flat screen which only has a dvi port, so trying to use a hdmi > dvI lead but it won't work, the screen just stays blue! Checked both leads are in right and they are but nothing, I cycle through the ext, and for some reason I can see my sky tv on ext 2 now as well!?

Please help.

I had the same issue on vga to vga, it's the resolution you are running in your PC, the windows loading screen is low res, try setting your resolution in windows on 1200 x 600 or 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768.

it should display it, choose thge one that fits your screen aspect ratio.

TV's are pretty dumb, they will not display anything if the resolution is too high.

good luck
