I have a DLP and wouldn't trade it. I didn't realize it at the time of purchase but DLP is only 1 of 2 truly digital televisions. Even plasma is analog.

That article says that most HDTVs don't let you adjust any settings when using DVI/HDMI. I am sure glad my RCA DLP does let me adjust EVERYTHING.

I agree completely. All fixed pixel displays are inherently digital by nature.

Monster cables are over-hyped and way overpriced. Shop around,,,compare specs,,and for Gods sake,,if you happen to buy MC's at BestBuy,,please don't buy their "service plan" on them.

I would buy the A/R brand cables that Best Buy sells instead of monster cables. They are about 1/4 the price and just as good. That is what I use.

Here is the link for the A/R Component cable I use it is $19.99:
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1069297060473

For A/R DVI 6 foot cable I would get - it is $49.99:
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1087340589368

If you stick with the Accoustic Research brands you will cut your cost to less than HALF what Monster cables cost, and you will NEVER see or hear a difference.

Can anyone verify this claim? If it is true we can sue all the manufacturers and the stores that sell LCD and Plasma TVs as ditgital TVs. This is clearly false advertising. I am going to make a copy of that article and take it to my lawyer to see if it will hold up.

Hold on a minute; Don't quit your day job just yet!

p.s. Plasma, LCD, DLP, & LCoS are digital. CRT's are analog.
