Re: hdmi, comp to tv
VGA is analog. If you want to view next-gen HD content via HD-DVD or Blu-Ray (provided you can even afford it), you'll need HDCP compliant hardware. Your TV is fine, because it already has HDMI. If you want to play HD content from your computer, you'll need a HDCP compliant video card, and there are none out yet. So playing true HD content will only work if you have HDMI. VGA won't.
