Hi,
I have a client that wants to hook up his PC to his TV.
A television that have a SVGA port
A PC that has a video card with one HDMI port and one DVI port.
He has a HDMI cable. A SVGA cable which is used with an adapter (DVI to SVGA) connect to the PC monitor.

Given that configuration can he connect his PC to the TV and have both the PC monitor and the TV monitor functioning? If so, what cables go where?
Thanks
I

he should be fine.  Even though it's more expensive, a sling box actually make a pretty sweet solution.  it's wireless.  he should really just go HDMI to HDMI in this case

Cheapest method you can get a DVI to SVGA converter which should come with his videocard. and connect a vga to vga cable to his TV. No sound goes to the TV with this soultion.

Does his monitor have a HDMI port? If so he should use HDMI to connect his monitor and use the above solution to connect to his TV. Otherwise you gonna need a extra video card with a vga port.

So if he doesn't have hdmi on the monitor. You can buy a cheap video card and do with that new port.

Do I need to anything to the monitor or PC in order to get his PC to recognize the HDMI port on the card?
It can't at the moment.

I forgot to give you the porst that are available.
The monitor has HDMI,  and a DVI   port. The television has an SVGA port, but I have a SVGA to DVI adapter.
The PC has a card with both an HDMI and a DVI and an on board SVGA port as well.
Thanks

Use the HDMI from PC to LCD. And use the DVI to SVGA port. And both should work fine.

Thanks people.
I think he has a bad video card so we are going to try that.
I learned quite a bit.
