How can I connect my Monitor to TV?
I need at least a 20ft cord because my monitor is in my room and the TV is in the living room.
Can I buy a DVI to HDMI and plug in DVI on monitor and HDMI on TV? but then won't I need another DVI to connect it to the tower?

Computer Specs:
D-Sub, DVI-D, HDMI 1.3

TV Specs:
HDMI

any help will be appreciated

Thanks in advance.

No, the DVI on your monitor is for input only; you cannot connect it to another monitor/TV. You will need to connect the TV to the video card.

Perhaps I am not fully understanding your original question, but as I see it you need to connect a DVI cable from your PC to your monitor, then an HDMI cable from your PC to your TV.
