I plan at some point when the wife says I can to build an htpc. Meanwhile was thinking of hooking up my gateway laptop to the 507. The laptop has a female vga out and the 507 has vga and dvi. Which is the best to use on the tv given the current configuration. IE which will make the screen on 507 look more like a pc screen with the proper resolution? Any suggestions? And where to purchase economically?

Given that your notebook outputs VGA and not DVI, I would suggest a Male-Male VGA cable. I would use a low cost cable if length is 6' or less. If alot longer, I would look for a high quality VGA cable.


To fill the entire screen, you can download the Powerstrip program so your notebook can output 720P resolution and timing (assuming the notebook graphics controller is supported by Powerstrip). http://www.entechtaiwan.com/ps.htm
