    Could you please tell us what you are intending to do with this cable?

    Could it be possible to hook your computer to a HD TV with such said cable?


    Thanks

    Hi again -

    It would depend upon your computer and what it has available as far as video out on your graphics card.

    What version of Windows do you have?

    Plus it would also depend on what type of video input connector(s) you have on your HD TV/Monitor.

    The HD TV needs at least one way of getting video signals in the TV. Some HD TVs may support switching between more than one set of video inputs. There is more than one type of connector system used by HDTV manufacturers. You have to tell us what types of video connectors are used on your particular HD TV for the video inputs.

    Sounds like a DVI cable may be your best connection method between your video card and your HD TV. The next step would be to check if the video card has a video resolution and frequencies setting that is compatible with your HD TV.
