    Please help!!

    I have just bought a Hitachi 32LD7200 32" LCD TV and i'm overjoyed with it. I have it all connected up and working fine.

    I thought I would connect the LCD to my computer as it has a HDMI and a DVI-D [::::::::-] socket. My PC has a the usual connections at the back. VGA, S-Video and what I think is a DVI-A [::: ::: ::] socket (It has the numerous single pins with four individual pins around it). My problem is which cable to buy?

    I bought a DVI-I cable (Digital and Analogue I think?) but this would not go into the LCD as it didn't have the 4 pin slots around the flat cable.

    WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO CONNECT THE TWO? Can you buy a DVI-A to DVI-D converter?

    Can anybody help me as no so called 'experts' in shops seem to know!

    Thanks in advance

    Dean

    What graphics card do u have? If it definatly has a DVI-A connection then there is no cable u can use to connect it. DVI-A is not compatible with DVI-D. However im pretty sure that your graphics card would be DVI-I so u would just need a DVI-D cable. Check this link - http://www.directron.com/dviguide.html#cabling
