Default Re: Connecting PC to 37" LCD HDTV - what cable is the best?

Were you able to get 1366x768 resolution from DVI to HDMI connection from PC to TV?
Don't know if its specific to my setup but if I force 1366x768 on my HDTV, the picture shakes slightly and its really annoying. In the end I set it to 1280x720 (720p) and this works fine. I did compare the quality even though it was shaking at the higher res and I couldn't see any quality difference at all.

Also, I originally used component to connect the tv but wasn't happy with it as I had to position/resize the picture myself so in the end went for a dvi connection and not only does it size/position correctly, I believe the PQ is noticeably better. For reference the tv hated 1366x768 using component or dvi.
