    This article is about 2 years old and probably a bit dated. Almost all new HDTVs are equipped with “pc input” which is compatible with a standard PC VGA/SVGA monitor output. The VGA/SVGA has “plug and play” capability (or EDID) so your graphics controller will usually know what is connected to it. Your best resolution available is greatest of the two common supported resolutions on both your PC and HDTV.

    Although the VGA/SVGA connection is analog, not digital, it supports full high-definition imaging and works great. And almost all laptops have this interface. You can even get a specialy VGA/SVGA cable that comes with built-in audio. PCTVCables.com

    The problem with the newer HDTV’s with PC inputs, you’re stuck using an inferior analog VGA signal. I have found a product that gives you true HD video at 720p, and digital audio through HDMI. It uses basic software to take both video and audio from the PC’s USB port, and outputs a full digital, Hd signal via HDMI to the HDTV. Here’s a link to the products manufacturer’s website. It’s called the HD Cinema. So far I’ve found very little to complain about, it’s been working great. Great to watch streaming movies.
