I just bought a Optoma HD80 1080p projector.  Right now i am using component
out on my nvidia card.

I am curious if going to DVI/HDMI will give me better picture quality.
Anyone know?

Also,  which will be easier to configure/setup.  Basically will xorg
configure a hdmi display device and configure it as a regular computer
monitor or will i need modelines/tv out settings?  I assume DVI would just
click and be working.  Right?

Also for future growth with HD-DVD/Blue-Ray players can i use a HDMI->DVI
adapter (and get full res)?  I dont want to have to buy 2 cables.

I know that the signaling with HDMI and DVI is the same I am just worried
about the setup signaling with HD-DVD/BD and Nvidia DVI cards.

Hope this makes sense...
