    Here's a couple of late night questions regarding this set:

    1. I've posted before moaning about the lack of analogue RGB PC input on this set as I would use the DVI input for my DVD player. Is there any way I can connect both the DVD player and PC to one DVI input?

    2. Is it possible to connect a PC to the set via RGB scart and is this the same as an analogue RGB PC input?

    3. Is the DVI input on this set HDCP compliant?

    Many thanks in advance.

    What's the difference between DVI-I, DVI-A and DVI-D?

    The Sharp set appears to be DVI-I. I really don't know what the difference is?

    Thanks for comments so far.

    DVI-D is digital only
    DVI-A is analogue only - the connector was too expensive for this to replace VGA
    DVI-I is combined Digital and analogue

    So basically, you can use the DVI-I connector on the Sharp to input both analogue and digital sources.
