Is VGA going to be gradually phased out? Computers usually have both a VGA and HDMI output. Will computer monitors eventually be HDMI?

When you attach external speakers to a newer TV, what outputs do you usually use? It used to be the AV left and right - don't know what it is these days. What if it's surround?

I'm guessing you haven't looked at a notebook in awhile. VGA ports are rare at this point. My new ASUS desktop has only a HDMI port which connects to my 27" HDMI monitor. As to TV's, mine have had ARC HDMI for a few years now. The TVs also have TOSLINK.

That's what it is these days.
