I am almost finished my theater and I have come across another issue. Currently I have a s-video cable run to my 4805. I might want to hookup my PC to it in the future. I have almost 18GB of Loony Tunes, 3 Stooges, etc. In the past, I had a video card with a RCA output to my TV. It played fine for the movies, but it was terrible for browsing the web or other computer applications. Will a video card that has a s-video output be good enough? The 4805 came with a DVI cable to connect to the PC monitor output. Should I use this? If so, I need to run a 25’ extension.

DVI would have much higher quality than S-Video.
