Issues with RGB output.
Until recently, I was using a NVidia 7300GT 512MB with either my 3 year old LG monitor or my new 42 inch LG LCD screen. Yesterday, I upgraded to NVIDIA 9400GT 1GB. When I attached the RGB cable from my TV to the Output jack of the Graphic card, it did not work. All it showed was "no input detected",
The Graphic card has a HDMI port and so does the TV.
Should I shift to HDMI??
Will it give me better outputs as compared to RGB??
Also, Why did the RGB cable not work all of a sudden??

HDMI will give you a far better output compared to RGB, owing to it's higher resolution.
Are you using a VGA to RGB converter ? Or an S-Video to RGB ?
The reason for RGB not working could be non-compatibity. What I wikipedia-ed went over my head, partially. Something to do with YPbPr, YCbCr blah blah.
If it helps, here's the link.

Dont even consider the RGB cable if you have a 42inch LCd,HDMI is the newer standard in display cables and is leagues ahead when compared to RGB,it has an all-digital interface which insures that no detail is lost.And if your LCD has built-in speaker the HDMI cable carries the sound output as well
But HDMI cables are pretty expensive,stay away from cheap chinese ones

You however might not see a night and day difference, or even any difference at all.
Sure, stay away from the el cheapo cables which might break or be so poorly constructed that they dont offer a good connection.
But beyond that, i promise you that you won't be able to tell and audio or video difference between a $5 cable and a $120 cable.
The HDMI content is all DIGITAL, hence cable quality doesn't factor in much, unlike with analog signals.
