I read a review of the dell 2007WFP, which supports "hdcp over dvi".
i want to watch blue ray movies at the fullest resolution .
previously, i assumed that hdmi was required in order to have hdcp.
i understand that hdcp is required in order to watch BD disc at fullest resolution, right?
I'm looking for a display that i can use with my PC nvidia 7600 using the DVI , plus hook up to the future Play Station 3 to watch BD discs.
Thanks,
Peter

Many movie studios have stated their BD titles will allow 'full resolution' even through component...I wouldn't worry too much about BD while making a TV decision.

HDCP works over DVI and HDMI.

If you had an old display and are wondering whether you need to upgrade to HDCP capable one, I would wait it out and see how the studio behave regarding ICT.

However, if you are getting a new display, personally I would only get one which supported HDCP, because you don't know how the future will turn out.

The problem is that all PC video cards are dvi, so getting a hdmi is not a good choice.

Like i said , i want to attach a lcd to my moniter, and support hdcp.

the dell 2007 wfp seems to support hdcp over dvi. Anyone have any comments ?

Thanks,
Peter

DVI and HDMI are electrically equivalent, they just use different plugs. You can connect DVI/HDCP to HDMI port and get video. What you should be concerned about is not DVI or HDMI per se, but whether the ports support the features you are interested in. In particular you should care whether the HDMI port will support dot by dot pixel mapping and allow for no overscan. If you buy a display from a computer manufacturer chances are pretty good the display will work like you expect a PC monitor to work.
