OK, I've looked around the net and it seems simple enough. I have a GTX 285 and it has two ports, one which is a DVI and is available, the other hooked up to my monitor. I've just ordered a male DVI/female HDMI adapter, should be here soon. What I'm wondering is.....what do I do then? Do I need to install specific software for my PC to output the proper signal to my TV? Is it already built in to the card? I assume the DVI is there with the intention to be used with a TV.
Also, I've read there's regular DVI and "dual link" DVI adapters (the later if I want sound through my TV instead of PC speakers). I've also heard dual links don't work with sound. If not, what are they for? Finally, do I need a special kind of HDMI cable for this? Sorry for the dumb questions, I'm dense when it comes to tech stuff.
