I suspect you'll need something like this: Buy the Sabrent HDMI to Composite/S-Video Converter at (not saying this is the cheapest/best, was just the first one I found)
That's my understanding as well, it was proprietary on the VGA ports and probably not something they've carried forward to the DVI pinouts.
