I am searching for an adapter or cable to connect the HDMI output of a ROKU LT to a Magnavox 26MF605W TV with a DVD-D input. The image below shows the configuration of the DVD-D input on the TV. My problem is that I can not find a male DVI-D connector that matches.
In the TV User Guide the diagram of the DVI connector shows a horizontal flat pin while on the TV it is vertical. Any help with this is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I got this reply from John in the HDTV forum:

Here is a link to an HDMI to DVI wiring pinout: http://pinouts.ru/VideoCables/hdmi_dvi_cable_pinout.shtml
