is HDMI more...
Topic: is HDMI more power intensive? hence problematic , than VGA
my computer seems to struggle a bit when HDMI is connected. it still works, but i see the occasional stall in the screen refresh (on my computer) which kinda worries me in the middle of a gig, and just the setup seems generally more delicate, computer gets warm and the CPU seems to work a little bit harder, whereas with VGA it seems to be more solid, stays cool
im aware that VGA is analogue, whereas HDMI is digital (and that HDMI can take audio , which isnt necessary in this case of course)
frankly, video is secondary to audio so it matters less to me than the audio
it just occured, that maybe the reason its putting more stress on my PC is because the television is high definition, wheras when im using the VGA its for my projector which is only 1280, 720

One thing to look out for is that you don't choose a resolution that your TV/projector can't handle.
