k. Im going to be getting the Rogers DCT3250 High Definition Cable Box to go along with a Sony bravia tv. The HD cable box is DVI output and the TV is HDMI, so if i buy a monster HDMI/DVI cable would i experience the same picture quality as an HDMI cable? I know sound will be different so in that case im assuming a monster optical audio cable will replace whatever audio signal the monster HDMI cable provided.. so in the end the HDMI/DVI cable with the optical audio cable will be equivalent to a monster HDMI cable in terms of sound and picture quality right?

Because there will be no audio signal on the cable box's DVI output, you will have no sound on the TV's speakers with just the DVI/HDMI cable going into the TV. So you'll have to hookup analog audio into the the TV, or use the cable box's digital audio output into an external audio system.

Since HDMI is backwards compatible with DVI, the digital video on your display should be outstanding.
