Hoping I can get some help here. I am looking at wanting to connect my Surface Pro to a monitor with a DVI port.

Clearly I could just get the offical Surface VGA adapter however I would like to use to sometimes connect to a TV so wanted to know if anybody was doing something like this.... Mini-Display to HDMI via adapter and then HDMI to DVI via a cable like this would this still work?
