Working great here now for several years too....
In case you'd like a confirmation, I have the monoprice.com cable as described by Drew2k, which has been working great on my rear projection monitor for over 2.5 years.

Thanks everyone I ordered one today. I am currently using the component, blue, green and red cables, will there be a lot of difference when I get the HDMI cable?
Less chance of interference so potentially better picture.

Some people have said the component looks just as good to them as HDMI. I haven't ever checked, so I can't say from personal experience.

Depends on the HD receiver you have, but
Remember that you'll need an optical cable as well. DVI doesn't give you the audio.
newer ones have both optical and coax digital out, so either one can work if the OP is even using digital audio out from the HD receiver.

Are you using your TV for audio, or an A/V Receiver? Check that the input you have plugged red/white RCA calbes into on the TV is the same input as the DVI. For example, on my TV I have two sets of component ports with each set having their own audio inputs. For my two HDMI ports only one has Optical audio input, the other has no audio inputs, and neither has RCA audio inputs. In my case the HDMI carries the audio, but if for some reason I was going from DVI to HDMI (ex: PC to TV), I'd have to put the audio in through the HDMI's optical audio input on my TV.
Well I have received my cable and I have no audio. I just read the last two posts on here before I plugged the cable in last night. The picture is really not better so I am disappointed at the moment, and now I try to switch back to the components cable and some for some I reason I still have no sound at all. I am now confused what I really need, I did look in my tv manual and I think I have all the cables connected properly, all it asks for is red and white audio cables which I plugged in but no audio.
(Also check that your TV speakers are not disabled in your TV menu.)

I would keep using the DVI cable since you have it anyways.
