Well mate if the OP has crappy service via HDMI alone then there is something wrong with that port or the TV full stop.

Myself and if were me if I was suing DVI I would just use a DVI- DVI cable no point in using the HDMI and I am just wondering if anything is being played from the computer to the TC+V how does say sound - audio get through and vice versa if you are recording from the TV then you would only be getting graphics and no audio again the point is......

Forgive my ignorance but I thought DVI only carried graphics and not audio so I am missing a something here I feel.
Yes you are correct, It was just that the my TV does not have a DVI in, so I used DVI to HDMI cable to connect my computer. When I get a new monitor I was just checking that I don't have to buy a DVI to DVI cable and I can still connect it via DVI to HDMI. But yes there will be no audio from it, I use external speaker from the audio jack.

You don`t have to buy a dvi cable, it will come with the monitor, all monitors come with a dvi and a vga cable.

He's already got a DVI to HDMI cable and wanted to know whether he could use it with his new monitor.

I hope you don't think I was insinuating you were wasting his time John as I wasn't. I had to post quickly due to being at work and only meant to clear up what he intended to, if it needed clearing up at all. No offence intended on my part.

I use a dvi to hdmi cable on my Sony and it looks fine using any port.
I do actually know quite a few people who've used TVs instead of monitors and said the picture quality is poor in comparison. My backup rig is in my kids' room through a JVC HD Ready TV, and even at 720p it looks bloody awful.
Yep, a tv will never look as good as a pc monitor because of the pixel size difference, but playing a game or watching a movie on the hdtv from the pc, it should look just fine.
