Ok, let's break this down....
d3athlok did not need to state the model, although that would have helped you. But what he did do was title this thread vga vs hdmi/dvi connection
, therefore it seems he is looking to go with either VGA - VGA or HDMI - DVI....right? Then he says his PC has a VGA and DVI connection...so therefore the TV has both VGA and HDMI inputs.
You suggested to begin with that he go with DVI connection, but that would mean he'd have to go DVI - HDMI, and now you say not to go HDMI. I think maybe you misunderstood his post and or title?
I use a cheap $20.40 Monoprice SVGA cable (linked above) that is 50' long and I continue to have great success with it.
The 50" and 60" Pio's that are 1365 x 768 WILL
do 1:1 via VGA connection
- Powerstrip is not needed. You have to send 1360 x 768 and there will be 5 columns of unused pixels - therefore producing a 1:1 pixel map.
Same with the 42" Pio's that are 1024 x 768. They will accept 1024 x 768 via VGA producing a 1:1 pixel map with no lost columns of pixels. Powerstrip is not needed for this either.
Here is what the Pio consumer and Elite panels accept via VGA connection:
