    The simple fact is the pc doesn't recognize the tv as a valid monitor..it's turning the dvi ports off even before I get into windows to set a resolution. That being said the jvc tv is a 720p tv and converts all input signals to that resolution (which theoretically means it would accept any resolution and do a conversion if it was gonna work).



    My thought was that if I plugged the pc into a receiver with hdmi in it would recognize the receiver and send the signal...the receiver would then pass the signal to the tv but I'd prefer a cheaper solution.

    Re. component output - I'm pretty sure the component output on current ATi cards is on the same connector as the composite/s-video output - you just need the correct cable (but check first that your card does support component output).

    It will look better than s-video, and it supports 720p output.
