dvi-hdmi would be best but with PC to LCD its more often a case of which connection will give you the correct resolution i.e. the native resolution of the screen.

dvi is the same as hdmi. without audio


component is the best analog video signal...


dvi is digital video.

Use in this order for preference: VGA; Component and DVI-D (least - best).

Just to confuse a little DVI can be digital, analogue or integrated :eek: . All About DVI should help.

DVI-D does use the same video protocol as HDMI.

I agree, but to be pedantic the correct resolution is the one which works best for your setup, this may not be the native resolution.

e.g. I have a Sony XL100 connected to a Toshiba 32WLT66 with HDMI-HDMI @1216 x 684, far from the native res of 1366 x 768.

Why do you say VGA is worse than component? Lots of us use VGA to connect to our screens because it gives the clearest image.

The best one ??

Easy...

Try all of them and pick the one *YOU* are most happy with.

That will then be the best one - :lesson: - Dont just pick the best one based on teckky stuff

Theres too many variables to think about, quality of card, cable, tv etc etc etc

Mark states it far more practically - I'm much more a theoritician :D .

Go on then, I'll bite. Why on earth is that the best resolution for your setup and why is that better than having 1:1 mapping?

You will find that different combinations of graphics cards, TVs and connections will give you different sets of available resolutions and different results. (eg I did try via componennt at one point and got overscan)

For MCE and the like you will not notice any difference but if you are using the windows desktop 1:1 pixel mapping is very noticeable.

It's the best for me because it works better than any others I've tried (Using the "Mark Carline Method") - Windows/Internet browsing from about 2m is excellent, so is MCE . . . the end :thumbsup: .
