Hi. I am trying to connect my lcd tv to my pc to run alongside my current monitor. I have a dvi-hdmi cable and have plugged it in, but no pic, just a blank screen. The pc doesn't seem to recognise the lcd tv, so how can I make it recognise the tv as a monitor? I have tried different resolution settings to no avail. Do I need to get a tv tuner card with a hdmi connection to run from the pc?Problem is that pc is upstairs and tv is downstairs so I have a pretty long cable, to long for a vga cable. I have an nvidia geforce 7600le graphics card and am running on windows vista. can someone please help me?
Thx for your help

with my lcd tv you have to press the 'source' button on the tv controller then select hdmi for it to accept the incoming signal.
