Not sure why you need two HDMI ports. But generally, DVI ports and HDMI ports are interchangeable. All you need is a DVI to HDMI cable or adapter. I heard not all NVidia 9xx cards sold on the market...

4:4:4 does not matter much to video. It is there to help better display PC text or other thin line drawings. Without 4:4:4, you will notice fuzzy text and lines. But video should remain the same as...

LG's internal processing is done @ 4:2:2 IIRC, which is more than enough for video playback as most of the source material is 4:2:0 anyway. You will not be able to get 4:4:4, e.g. no difference what...
