I have a Sony Bravia KDL32M3000. Anyhow, I would love to hook up my HTPC to the T.V. What kinda cable would I need to do this? I am also getting a Blu-Ray dvd drive for my pc. Will my specs play high def dvds at full frame without any lag? Mark, Jason Cross has got you covered. Your specs are good to handle Blu-Ray. As for the cable, get a DVI to HDMI cable or a DVI to HDMI adapter. However, you will need seperate cables for audio. • Loyd Case will be back on the show May 1st.
