As I understand things, the new HP XB31 has a VESA M1 input. In order to provide component video from my Harman DVD-50 (Progressive Scan) it appears that I need a special (optional) cable to give me Component Video to VESA M1. Is this correct and if so, where in the world do I find one of these cables?

I am just starting to move into the Video side of HT, so I'm still learning. My belief is that I will see a marked improvement in video using the above setup versus the S-Video route.

Any help is appreciated.

Yes. From HP. Cable is not that expensive $25 or so.

you need "HDTV/USB to M1-A Cable" (aka "Component to M1 cable") msrp from hp is $56, street price is about $45.
InFocus also makes one of these cables, so you should be able to save a couple of bucks by getting it from them.
Check with forum sponsers to get one, but send me a pm if you have trouble finding one.
