Why am I not surprised?

Ha. I tried plugging in my computer (DVI) to my AV receiver (HDMI, with a simple adapter), and then to my HDTV (HDMI). I assumed that, being all-digital, it would all just work! Unfortunately, the picture was offset by half a screen width for some reason, and no amount of twiddling could make it work right.

I thought it was weird that an all-digital connection wouldn't be perfect. Now I'm impressed that anything showed up at all!

(It works great if I connect my computer directly into the TV, and all other HDMI sources I've tried can pass through my receiver just fine. It's just that particular combination that happens to fail.)
