Connecting PC to LCD TV

In reply to: NO.

Thanks for your reply, R. Proffit.

Unfortunately, I don't understand what VGA support means.

There's a HDMI socket at the back of the TV. At present I have a HDMI cable attached from this socket to a Blu Ray player.

I should have wrote in my post that I want to connect my PC to my TV.

Then no cable is needed?

You try the HDMI cable you have and if that works, you are done. I looked for PC details and can't find them so I went to check the TV and found no VGA support so again, a dead end.

I've given up on connecting my PC to my TV. I'll do this when I upgrade my computer.

Install new video card

If you want to you HDMI then get a video card that has HDMI port. From what I gather on this thread that's what you're left with. If there is some adapter, it may not be as cheap or as ready as a video card with the HDMI port. Don't make this complicated at least that's the direction I'll go. If you plan to buy another PC, the new video card would be cheaper. I suggest a ATI 4350 or similar.
