For the last few years I have had a HP laptop hooked to a RCA HDTV (with DVI, not HDMI!) with S-video.
The display is crappy, always has been. I just bought a new laptop, this time I made sure it had VGA and HDMI ports.
But now I'm getting frustrated. I was doing research on what would be better to use, HDMI -> DVI, or VGA -> DVI.
Then I heard a nasty little rumor. If my DVI TV is NOT HDCP, then neither will work anyways!
WTF is this true? did I just spend extra money getting a laptop that had better ports for no reason?
I looked up the manual for my tv (RCA 56" HDTV, the model # is either R56WH76, or R56WH78) on the RCA website, and all it says is DVI.
SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!!!!
