Aaargh! Getting an X600 to connect to my LCD TV via DVI.

Hi all,

I have an ATI x600 in my media center PC, I also have a philips 23" LCD
TV. Both are slated to have DVI-I connectors, which as I understand it
means I could use a DVI-Digital cable to connect the two together. This
ain't happening.

I can connect computer to LCD TV using vga wih no problems, but can't
for the life of me figure out how to connect via DVI. Should I be able
to use VGA on my normal monitor and DVI on my TV at the same time? Any
"idiot guide" links or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Yes, you should be able to. You connect DVI out of video card to DVI in
on LCDTV. I have an LCDTV and it has VGA and DVI, I tried both and both
work fine. If it won't work for you then you could use a DVI to VGA
cable adapter and connect the DVI out of the video card to the VGA in on
the LCDTV.
