I'm trying to hook my Powerbook G4 1.67 to my Samsung HCN4226W 42' Projection HD TV:

It has a bizarre DVI Input and I cannot find a cable to sync. Here are pics of the input:

As you can see, it is missing the four holes near the minus part of the plug. I would greatly appreciate it if anyone has any info. Thanks!!!

Thats a DVI-D (digital only) connector. Thats not a bad thing, it just means you need a different cable. I recommend http://www.monoprice.com.

FYI, the extra holes are only for DVI-I, which is a combo of DVI-A (analog) and DVI-D (digital). You can go here (http://www.directron.com/dviguide.html) for more info.
