doesnt hdmi = dvi? so vga support is there? and looks like thats only confirmed for jap ps3
DVI-I = DVI-D + VGA
HDMI = DVI-D + SPDIF
DVI-I carries both a digital video signal (like that of HDMI) in addition to an analog signal similar to VGA
So DVI-I is essentially carrying 2 separate video signals at once (DVI-D as well as VGA)
VGA is no present in any way shape or form in a DVI-D or HDMI cable.
So while a DVI-I port will give you both VGA and the video portion of HDMI. HDMI nor DVI-D does not include a VGA signal.
The DVI format was made for computers so video cards could use the same port for both analog and digtial signals and save space. It's fairly confusing which is why it's not often included on TVs, and when it is included it's most often DVI-D... which is essentially HDMI but missing the audio portion.This post has been edited by twistedsymphony: Oct 12 2006, 06:11 PM
