    I have an HDMI to RCA converter cable to put my computer on my TV screen. However, when I hook the cable up to my computer and my TV, my computer does not detect it. I have a Toshiba Satellite A505 computer and run Windows 7. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    The cable will only work if the graphics card has TV out capability to output analog signals on the digital pins. I suspect the Satellite A505 does not have this capability .

    Is there a way I can check whether or not my graphics card has this capability?
