    well, I installed vista and went to watch netflix online movies and I got an error that the tech help said was probably that with the upgrade in drivers, it won't let me watch their digital movies with an HDCP compliant monitor which mine isn't. He said I could change from a DVI cable to an analog one and it should work, but I have no desire to do that.

    I asked if I could run both cables at once and he said that someone called and said they fooled it by doing that. Does anyone know if there is a fix for this without having to buy another monitor as mine isn't even a year old yet? Thanks

    just use an analog cable.. your tv cant accept hd signals.. and that way, the movie, which im guessing is in HD, cant be transmitted by your video card to the tv, the two cable thing only fools it into analog mode.. but you wont get the hd on your tv.. you're best off just using adapters.

    Are you saying I can use both at the same time? Because the DVI makes an obvious difference on my computer.
