This is true for video, but falling back to using a DVI adapter will
require you to get sound using other means (3.5mm audio cable). This might
not be a big deal if you're using a PC monitor (monitors don't typically
have speakers, anyway). But it might matter if you buy a low-end TV that
has DVI but doesn't have a secondary audio input (these do exist. My wife
has one).
