When I purchased the Pundit, I wasn't even thinking about DVI-A.  I sure hope that its actually a digital or Integrated output, not an analog.  Should be a couple of users on here that know!

I own an HLP, and it works fine with the NVidia DVI-I I'm using in -D 
mode. Two things: 

(a) It wouldn't surprise me if the Samsung doesn't do DVI-A. Never 
quite understood the point of DVI-A; perhaps someone can enlighten me. 

(b) A DVI-A-only output port is really, really dumb and wouldn't make a 
whole lot of sense; I really doubt the SIS works this way. I suspect 
the port and the monitor negotiate on a mutually-supported protocol 
(either -D or -A). The SISCTRL program may simply be indicating the 
mode it's in currently. There may be a way to force it into a 
particular mode.
