Hi,
I'm relatively new to Macs' so be gentle

I have a G4 MDD Mac with video card that has both DVI and ADC. I have used this computer with DVI->VGA & DVI->HDMI. I'm now trying to use it DVI to DVI on a Phillips 20" (non wide screen) LCD HDTV. I get NO signal. I have tested the TV with the same DVI cord with my XP box, and there were no issues.

Any clues?? I'm stumped!

I also have an Intel Mac mini if that would help with trouble shooting.

Thanks!
Keith

Ok. A little update. The TV has DVI in but is ONLY 640X480 (and they call that "High Def". PFFT)

I think my video card can't go that LOW of a res. Any help? Do I need a different video card?

Let us know what happens. If the Mini does the same thing I will do some searching around and see what I can find. 640x400 should be no issue.
