i decided to order a dvi(m) to vga(m) cable wich arrived today. ill link you to a nic pic of the one i bought. im trying to use my hdtv as my monitor
unfortunetly it wont fit in the dvi plug on my tv!! niether the website OR my tv manual specified a dvi type so i figuerd this would do the trick. it fits fine into my pc the near the top of the dvi connector there is a long flat pin surroned by i belive 4 regual skinny pins, on my tv's dvi connection it doesnt have a spot for those 4 pins around the long flat pin. this was certainly dissapointing, it was quite the process even finding this cable. can this be fixed by me? or some kind of converter? or do i need a whole new cable?
heres the cable i have
