Well at least we're closer.
Something you can try. You might have already done this by now.

Connect it to the 2601 and put it in mirrored mode if not already.
(Can't find the manual for your 2601 online anywhere)
Pull out both manuals. Compare the resolutions that each one works with and set it to one that is compatible with both TV's.

Now give it a try on the 4201. If it's not working at this point:
and you still get only a single display box - I would have to say the DVI port on the 4201 is not working.
if you are getting two boxes for display properties - the port is apparently working and the computer sees the TV, but the TV is not able to display the signal.

Now you're only real options are:
1) is it worth returning the TV (or if under warranty getting someone out to fix it).
2) giving it a go by trying either a DVI to VGA cable or a DVI to HDMI - better if you have one of these you can steal from another piece of equipment for a few minutes before you go out and buy one. (Or maybe take the cable you have back and exchange it)

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
