    It's probably a VGA connection. You can use a DVI to VGA converter cable but check first if you don't have any HDMI or DVI connections on your TV.

    D-sub is 15 pin VGA. It can support DVI or HDMI as well. Let us know what TV and what video card you want to connect.

    The display card DVI-I connector has pins for DVI-D and VGA. Most display cards cone with a DVI-I to VGA adapter like this. In that case you need a VGA cable.



    If you can't find the adapter, you can buy a DVI-I to VGA cable. If the cable is over 10ft. make sure it is a good grade with double shielding.

    $5-$50 depending where you buy it. 4m (15ft) can be found in any computer store or online.

    Is possible to connect the Pc from DVI output, with TV- HDMi input?

    Yes, just use a DVI->HDMI cable. Like this one:

    Make sure your video card in your computer is HDCP capable otherwise using a DVI to HDMI cable will not work.

    VGA is the more fool proof connection and cables are cheaper.
    - no overscan
    - Standard computer display sizes (e.g. 1024x768, 1366x768)

    DVI-D to HDMI has several issues but offers potential for higher quality.
    - overscan
    - HDCP
    - 1080i/1080p/720p/480p/480i video sizes
    - potentially expensive cables

    Ummm....I don't think so.....I've already tried hooking up one of my computers to my Panasonic LX70 HD LCD TV by using a HDMI to DVI cable that I got from monoprice.com. All I got was a blank tv screen. I was told by monoprice.com that the video card has to be HDCP capable in order for it to work on a HD LCD TV. Which does make sense. Therefore I'm assuming by using a Blu-ray or the soon to be dead HD-DVD drive from a computer would be able to playback on a HD LCD TV as long as the video card is HDCP capable.
