I have an old Gateway model desktop PC (Model GT5422E) that has 2 firewire ports (IEEE1394) on it. Just got a new HDTV with an HDMI cable. The cable ends don't fit into the ports - duh. Is there an adapter/converter I can buy so I can connect my PC to my TV? If so, what am I looking for, what is the approx. cost, and where can I find it?
