Hi Everyone,

I'm attempting to connect my computer to my TV and Receiver. I ran into a little wall. :)


Window Vista
Samsung 36' LCD. (I can't find the model number on my TV)
GeForce 8500 GT
HDMI Cable - Both ends are male.
DVI - HDMI convert.

I connected my computer with my TV using the components above. However, I changed the source on the TV and receive "No Signal". I tried changing the port on my TV - HDMI1 and HDMI2 and get the same response. I tried tweeking with Display Setting in Windows, but still no luck. I believe there is no information is transmitted from my graphics card. My graphics card currently has my monitor and the DVI/HDMI converter connected to it. What needs to be done to send info from the DVI port or trouble shoot to find the source of the problem?

Thanks so much in advance!

If the GForce is anything like my NVidia card, it has it's own "control panel" software and there's a setting on there which says "scan for devices" at which point it will pick up your tv.

Note that going from your graphics card only will NOT transmit any audio - all you'll get is the picture.

Hope this helps.
