RE: Connecting Dell Latiutude E6410 to HGTV

TomPotterco,

I think HGTV is a channel on the television. However, I think i understand you are wanting to connect your Laptop to your HDTV. Below are some tutorials that may help you get this setup.

IEEE1394 to TV

Beginner Geek: How to Connect a Laptop to a Television

If your TV has an HDMI connection you can get a 

DP (DisplayPort) Male to HDMI® Female Adapter

DisplayPort is the newest digital display interface standard introduced by VESA. The format supports both digital video and audio. Here is a simple solution for connecting your DisplayPort equipped devices using HDMI® cables to your exisiting HDMI® devices. This simple adapter is all you need to convert from one format to the other.
 
Note: This is a passive adapter. While DisplayPort connectors are capable of passing an HDMI® signal, DisplayPort and HDMI® signals are basically different and not compatible with each other. This adapter does not actively convert a DisplayPort signal into an HDMI® signal. In order for this adapter to function properly, you must have a DisplayPort source device capable of producing and passing out an HDMI® signal through the DisplayPort jack.
