I am using an HDMI/DVI adapter and Monster Cable audio on my living room setup.It has worked very good so far for me.

Unless you are using the TV speakers, HDMI does not give you anything more than DVI. I'm using HDMI - DVI cables that I found online for around $25 each. :)

i do. i have both set up, and there is a noticible difference. i recommend going with a hdmi/dvi converter, or a hdmi/dvi cable. good luck.

I haven't used component cables with my setup,just the adapter.Considering the audio and video I am receiving,I am staying with the adapter.

I bought the HD Tivo unit last month from D*. It came supplied with a HDMI to DVI cable. Not sure if the new D* branded ones will though.
