The SVGA (DB-15) port you refer to on some HDTV's, is like a computer monitor only in that it uses the same type of connector.
HDTV & computer graphics are two different types of video signal. Very few consumer HDTV's are compatible with computer graphics. RCA has at least one model (36" direct view) and Princeton Graphics has a few that will do limited computer graphics display formats.
The bulk of consumer HDTV's are not compatible with computer graphics. The exceptions are the stand alone front/rear projectors. These units are multi-scan displays, compatible with a wide range of computer graphics formats, along with the HDTV formats. Most of these units will do VGA (640x480), SVGA (800x600), XGA (1024x768), and depending on the unit, UXGA (1280x1024).
