you can either use a cable with DVI at one end and HDMI at the other (what I'm doing).

Or have either a HDMI lead or a DVI lead, with an adapter at the relevant end.

However I've found I prefer having it connected via VGA to VGA, as HDMI can only accept certain resolutions, so if I load up a game that's in an unsupported res the HDMI port registers no signal and I swear and restart my PC....

that must be the problem i had then....lol...i had a HDMI-DVI adaptor and i figured it was only a one way one, not DVI-HDMI, or that converting from DVI to HDMI then HDMI to M1DA (or whatever that port is on my 7205) was too much to keep the signal...heh...my PC wouldnt recognise the PJ as a display anyhow...

so i went and got VGA-VGA...heh......tbh it looks just fine to me, i doubt there is any significant difference....
