Hi.

I am using an nforce 730i, a ZOTAC graphics card, and also a Samsung HT-C6600.

Problem is that I can't get my computer hooked up to my TV Screen.

I have tried both the On-Board and the ZOTAC with the Samsung using an HDMI cable and directly to my tv using a HDMI --> RGB-AV cable (The TV does not have HDMI In... its a bit old).

I'm probably asking at the wrong place but hopefully someone can help me with this.

Is there any reason why this shouldn't work?

Are you sure you linked the correct TV? according to the TV you linked the TV has a HDMI input, and you should be able to plug the HDMI in directly. In my experience, adaptors are hit and miss whether they work or not, but I would try the computer with a different screen to double check theres nothing wrong with the PC.

Actually,

I did not link a TV. I also mentioned that TV I have does not have HDMI but my BD HT has two HDMI in and one HDMI out as well as an RGB out, but I can't get picture on the tv.

ok so your not getting display on your tv-the one with the adaptor-but do you have a screen with a HDMI you can test it on to make sure the video card is working correctly?

No. I do not. There are, however, two cards in this situation. Neither the On-Board or the Zotac are being recognized. The computer recognizes the BD as another monitor though. Every time I plug in the HDMI cable, my VGA CRT monitor flashes black for a second.

So the primary plugin works (the DVI) There should be a setting in the NVIDIA control panel-though I admit Im not sure where as Im not familiar with NVIDIA cards.

I also got audio working with the HDMI cable. I have tried switching from 1080i/p and different refresh rates. I also don't think the tv understands digital signals either. Its an early model of HITACHI HD tv's and it's BIG (It eats up my living room space).

Could any of that be the problem?

an older TV could definetly be the problem-ive found the adaptors sometime just plain dont work. Thats why I was asking if the DVI worked on the video card on a traditional monitor-if the video card is operational and you can get the other ports to work, or the HDMI to work on a HDMI enabled screen, then the problem is most likely the older TV.

if your using a dvi adaptor for you hdmi stuff you need to make sure it's a dvi-i adaptor, so it's carrying both digital and analog not just one or the other.
