PS. Do you know does HDCP thing has anything to do with compatibility of this cable with my PC and TV?

thanks
The cable itself won't make a difference for HDCP protection, as it just passes the signal along. However, as far as I know you cannot pass HDCP over a VGA cable, so if you had content that required HDCP, it wouldn't be able to play correctly over vga. I've used a VGA and DVI to HDMI cable between a pc and a Westinghouse 32w6 which is also a native 1366 x 768. It has no problems passing 720p (1280 x 720) over the digital cable and looking good. IMO the quality of both is about the same, but digital just makes more sense since you have digital at both ends, and you have to convert the signal to analog just to go over a cable if your using a VGA cable.
