    Hi I am looking into getting HDTV, and the Cable Box I'll be using is the Motorola 6208 and a Sanyo PLV-Z2 Projector.

    The Cable box has a DVI-D, and the Projector has a DVI-I connecter, The Cable company said there compatible?? are they?? I dont wanna fry anything.

    I am only going to watch HD programs but NOT sure wich connection to use, I am going to have a DVD hooked up using Component.
    I need to know so I will now which Cables to buy.

    I could just use component for the HDTV and S Video for the DVD player but I would rather use the DVI& Component, from what I hear DVI is the better connection to use THNX!![​IMG]

    DVI-I combines both digital and analog signals in one socket. Its chief advantage is its versatility. Assuming that the DVI-D connector is even active. and you don't run into any encryption problems, it should provide the sharpest possible picture. Don't worry, you are unlikely to fry anything.
