    Hello Paul

    Your VSX-AX5i AV Receiver must be one of a kind it if has an HDMI Video connector on it!!!

    The DVI Graphic output on your proposed Laptop can be connected to the HDMI Input on the 04HDE Media Receiver with a DVI to HDMI cable (or a DVI to HDMI adapter) - though only if your Laptop can be set to output 480i, 480P, 576i, 576P, 720P or 1080i; in other words the HDMI Digital Input on the Media Receiver is a Video Input.

    There is an Analogue HD15 (VGA) Input on the Media Receiver too and this would be preferable if your running spreadsheets and the like at 1280x768@70Hz as converting these signals to 720P at 50 or 60 Hz will look pretty soft.

    If your proposed Laptop is DVI-I (Digital + Analogue Out) you can get a low cost DVI to VGA adapter - see http://www.gefen.com/kvm/cables/dvi2vga.jsp

    Best regards
