I have researched this somewhat, found this link
which I read, but I still don't have clarity--hence my post here.
I have a new PC with VGA and HDMI outputs, no DVI. I am awaiting a new 22" LCD monitor it has VGA and DVI connections. The PC is a Dell Zino, so I don't see where I have the option for a graphics card with a DVI-out port.
You probably have heard it before.
I am guessing that, due to the contect-protection algorithms which HDMI utilized (I just learned of them in my reading), I am thinking that I am SOL with connecting the monitor through the HDMI output even with some sort of adapter, at least if I play DVDs on the player there. It would appear I would either have to get a newer monitor with an HDMI connection or use the VGA with my current setup.
Am I right?
Also, while I realize my Dell Zino HD is as-is, do they sell quality graphics card with DVI-outs anymore to circumvent this?
No, I'm not into copying etc, just getting the low-down. Besides if copying were the thing, I don't see the point with such a setup, as you can copy DVDs all day long using software anyway.
