I have an existing DVI cable (4 years old) installed in a ceiling. Proposing to buy HDMI source (PC or Xbox via AV Receiver) and HDMI target (projector). Can I use the old DVI cable for the HDMI video signal (audio is handled by the AV Receiver anyway), as replacing the DVI cable will involve significant work? Many thanks. Brian

Many thanks Someone Somewhere - that was a quick response! What 'recent HDMI features' am I likely to miss out if I use DVI for video?
