[Discuss] Using a good TV as a monitor

DVI to HDMI is a simple passive adapter; the digital signals for the
video are identical. DVI doesn't pass audio, so if you plan to use the
speakers in the TV you will have to get the audio there some other
way. Aside from that it should work perfectly, though a 32" TV is
likely to only be 720p.
