I’m not the computer genius but I do have a friend that is and I’m sure they can tell you that using an HDMI cable is the way to go. An HDMI cable is what you would use if you wanted to have a High Definition set up for either your computer or for your home theater set up at home. I would love to have a High Definition set up but for now I’ll have to deal with the regular set up we have now. Maybe for Christmas, Santa will bring us a new Flat Panel TV? You never know? It might happen. But if he does then we’ll have to get an HDMI cable.
