I'm trying to show why the two need separate, but compatible standards. Monitors are intended for a viewing distance of less than 2 feet where TVs are designed for 6+ feet. In order to get a good picture at less than two feet away, you need a really high resolution (dpi). Conversly, the farther away you get from the display, the lower the dpi necessary to make it look exactly the same to the eye. More DPI means more bandwidth and more bandwidth means more robust cables. I think it is a bad idea to attempt to merge the two. I mean, HDMI is just now getting market acceptance when DVI has been around a long time. HDMI is good to go in the entertainment industry but it is time for the computer industry to move on. HDMI is old for that segment of the market.
