It's not worth the trouble.
I have a Dell Dimension 8250 tower which is an older pc, and I would like to try to connect it to my Samsung Series 3-330 if possible. My goal is to be able watch HD movies downloaded from a P2P network on the big screen.
I was told that the best way to do this is to use a DVI to HDMI cable. I have confirmed that the Samsung 3-330 TV has 2 HDMI ports in the back, but I am having trouble locating a DVI port on the old dell.
Is this because the Dell 8250 was created without a DVI port? Is DVI a more recent thing? The Dell was purchased about 5 years ago.
Is it even possible to connect an older PC to an LCD TV?
