I want to connect my PC to my TV. My graphics card is a Matrox P650 which has dual DVI outputs. The DVI is 19pins. I want to get the best picture qualty on my Sony KDF E50A12U TV which has HDMI & VGA inputs. I tried to connect a 29pin DVI cable to HDMI but I could not get a picture. First question can a 19pin DVI be connected to 29pin DVI (they fit together).

I next used a DVI to HD15 connector and connected a vga to vga cable. Success great picture quality.
What I need to know is what is best configuration in order to get the best signal quality to the TV should I get:
1) 19pin DVI to VGA cable
OR
2) use the adapter and get VGA to VGA (as I have now)
OR
3)DVI 29pin to VGA cable. This leads into the confusing world of DVI. Will a 29pin DVI (male) work with 19pin DVI (female).

Any advice very welcome.
Cheers
