Default HD TV as another monitor

Hi all,newbie here with a question about using my HD TV as another monitor.I will be using a DVI-HDMI cable from my Vista equipped,desktop PC to the TV.Do I need to unhook the DVI cable to the monitor first,and then connect my DVI-HDMI cable to the TV,or can I just use both the computer monitor and the TV at the same time?Is there anything else I need to do to make this work?My purpose here is to be able to watch U-tube videos,ect. from the computer,on my HD TV.Thanks in advance.
