Both TV and PC displays are evolving toward a flat screen with digital-cable interface. A flat-screen TV can be connected to a PC or HDTV set-top box using HDMI cable. A PC can be connected to an external monitor by a VGA or digital video interface (DVI) cable. The DVI can be considered the digital equivalent of a VGA interface. Note that the video portion of HDMI is identical to DVI.
