    Say I had an LCD TV, without a DVI connection, like the Sharp Aquos LC30HV4U. Would I be able to connect it with a DVI cable, to my graphics card, with a DVI to component adapter?

    Assuming this would work, would the quality be degraded with the conversion?


    Any help appreciated,

    There are 2 flavours of DVI connector, DVI-I and DVI-D. DVI-I is 'intergrated digital and analogue', DVI-D is digital only. If your graphics card is DVI-I it will be able to output VGA as well as DVI, in which case you can connect it to a VGA device with a suitable adapter. I very much doubt it's capable of outputting component video though.

    Is there any way of connecting a DVI-I graphics card, to a non DVI LCD, without much quality loss ?
