    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 for more info.
