Once again I turn here for some answers. . .
I have an hp w2207h widescreen monitor (22in 1680x1050) with hdmi input. I have 2 8800GT video cards with dvi outputs. Monday we're having cable tv installed and the DVR has an hdmi output and hi-def channels.
I'm currently using a dvi-analog converter plug on my vid card and going into the analog port of the monitor.
My plan was to buy a dvi-hdmi cable and a hdmi switch.
I'm going to run an hdmi cable from the cable box to the switch and run the dvi-hdmi converter cable from my vid card to the hdmi switch and then run the switch to my monitor.
Am I going through all of this for nothing? Will this monitor do HI-Def?
Here's a link to the monitor specs HP w2207h 22" Widescreen flat panel monitor specifications - HP Home & Home Office products
Will I be getting better video quality by doing this rather than using an analog cable and will this monitor work as a tv with the input from the cable box?
Thanks for your input.
