    i just got my new 1080p 42" LG hdtv. i bought the tv to be able to see all my movies and tv series that i have in my computer, most of them are 720p and 2 of them 1080p. lol its hard to find those ones.

    so here is my dilemma, im using a VGA cable right now, and i'm pretty happy with it, but a friend of mine keeps telling me to drop the VGA cable and use the hdmi, so i went and bought an dvi to hdmi converter, and decided to take a little tour on google with the VGA vs HDMI . so i spend about 3 hrs of continuing reading on the issue. i'm afraid to say that, in this moment i am way more confused about it, than i was before.. so here i am, praying for a good advice. what shall i use???

    i am only interested in video quality. not audio

    many say that the vga has better colors, but a little bit less sharpness

    sorry for the bad engilsh :)

    thank you all

    most tv's wont do 1080p over a vga cabel i think
    So if you want 1080p you will have to go for dvi-> hdmi.

    Also, why not just try out both and see which one you prefer yourself?

    When I bought a Blu Ray player, all the magazines recommended one made by Panasonic, however, I got the Sony because I thought the colours seemed more natural.

    I have both going to my TV, When I watch movies I switch to the HDMI, normal pc use and stuff I leave it on the VGA. It's simple, just make profiles in your video driver application and then load what you want when you need that profile to be up.

    i have a 32" 1080p TV that i use as my PC monitor and TV. i use a VGA cable for the PC input and HDMI from the cable box with no problems. i do, however, use a UXGA cable that handles higher resolutions...
