Default DVI Question, please help

I just noticed that the DVI plugs on my LCD TV and Video Card aren't the same. One has 29 pins i believe and the other has 24/25. Does anyone know what kind of cable I should buy to connect these, or does anyone have any knowledge on the subject that could give me some suggestions?

I just realized that the TV has DVI-HDCP and the video card has DVI-I. I'm assuming this is the problem. Foes anyone know for sure or have any suggestions or what i should do?

That is the new copy right protection connector, That will be required in a few years or month's to receive any hd content.

Edit - This site explains it pretty good,,I am still looking for an adaptor, don't know if that's possable or not. You may need the video card to go with it.


Edit2 - Does it not have an hdmi connector? Because those adaptors are available now.
