I was told this cable would connect my laptop and/or netbook to my HDLCD TV. No. it does not. As a matter of fact I have researched further and have found no actual use for this cable in any equipment that I recognize. I am not a gamer... so that maybe is its niche. BUt for the average person to connect with ease thier different machines, not good. I am hoping to send them back or pimp them off to one of my geeky friends who might know what the heck to do with them.
