Connecting HD digital box to PC LCD with HDMI...is it possible?

Message 1 of 1

I have an LCD PC monitor which is 22'' and has both a DVI (which I'm using with the computer), an HDMI (with HDCP compliance) and a VGA connection.

 

I was wondering if I could connect an HD cable box to my monitor using an HDMI cable? do I need anything extra? will my monitor display the image correctly?

 

I would suppose I would have to switch the resolution to 720p (1280x720) right? because there is no broadcast in 1080p yet and I don't think my monitor will accept the interlaced version of 1920x1080...

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
