We are installing a 57swx and connecting to Dish. The Dish HD receiver has S Video, Comp Video and a DB15 connector. Is DB15 a generic name for DVI?


What is the best way to connect to the set with these options?

Unless I'm seriously wrong (and I will be corrected if I am, I'm sure :)) the DB15 is the typical 15-pin VGA connection. DVI is significantly different, and I would be surprised if your Dish receiver had it...yet!

They're completely different. DVI is a 30-pin connector, DB15 is 15 pins, hence the designation.
