Well I'm not sure if this is true or not generally. But in my recent experience, HDMI is crap. I get terrible image quality with HDMI and instead I prefer to use traditional PC connections or SVGA for TV.

In particular, I plugged my Asus 24" HDMI monitor (my main monitor when at my desktop) into my Alienware laptop using a good HDMI cable and the image quality was just terrible, I mean really terrible, gray, washed out, fuzzy. Completely unacceptable image quality for us PC users. So I had to dig up a spare VGA cable and that provided the normal 'good' quality image.

That experience made a real impression on me that HDMI is rubbish on PC's, and that PC manufacturers don't implement it at all correctly.
