No. DVI and VGA are not the same:



As I mentioned earlier, there are several versions of your monitor. One has one DVI and VGA. Another only has VGA. It appears yours only has VGA. You *should* be able to play regular DVD movies, but you will not be able to display Blu-Ray movies on that display.

I was told that DVI was more antiquated than VGA, that's why I went that route.

So if I have another Blu-Ray that has a DVI port and switch them out and buy a DVI/Hdmi adapter I can watch BluRays?

The specs for the monitor says that it is vga/dvi capable. However, there is only one port. hence my question: are vga and dvi cables/ports compatable? I don't mean to be a beating, but an IT guy at work said, "use a monitor for a tv, no problem." was frustrated hours ago and hours of your free time to jack with what was to be no problem. Sorry Chief, if you're ever in the Dallas area I will hook you up. Ashley
