Exclamation Connecting a TV to G5 with an Aluminum Cinema Display

Okay, so I have a PowerMac Dual 2.5 with a 20" Cinema Display connected to the DVI port. So that leaves me with the ADC port open. I want to connect a TV to the G5 for presentations, but Apple only sells a DVI to video adapter. So to solve this problem I purchased Belkin's ADC to DVI connector and then the Apple DVI to Video adapter hoping to plug them together to the TV. So here's the problem, the DVI connectors on the Apple and Belkin cable don't plug into each other. The horizontal line on the left side of the DVI connector has 4 prongs (two above, two below). There are no holes for these prongs on the Belkin connector. Anyway, does anyone know an actual adapter that works, or any other solution to this problem?

Solved the problem relatively simply, just plugged in the display with the adc -> dvi connector and then plugged in the tv with the dvi connector.
