You can pick up a DVI to HDMI adapter or or cable. I purchased a 30' open box DVI to HDMI cable (open box) for around 15$ from Newegg.com I think
just the adapter runs around $8-$13. From my own personal experience, I get better looking display with no problems at all if I use just a DSUB VGA
cable to connect to my HDTV. I have an old Nvidia TI 4200 that has DVI and a DSUB for the VGA and it does not matter if I use the DVI to VGA adapter
or just go DSUB from the card to the HDTV DSUB input. Crystal clear and the card recognizes all the resolutions the HDTV supports.
In your case, I would use the DVI to DSUB adapter and connect to your HDTV with the DSUB input and not worry about the HDMI.
If you stuck on the HDMI then make sure you pick up the newest ATI drivers AND some additional software.
Make sure you get the Avivo suite and possible the HDMI Audio driver
You did not say what OS you have so I hopped it was XP. Vista has a bunch of DRM that might make your problem not go away.
