HDMI or vga is best as you will rarely find a DVI capable 42" LCD
HDMI is by far best, but vga is more than you need for this.

In my previous position we did exactly what you re thinking, ran a looping ppt presentation that just ran over and over, and used one of the micro PC's and hooked it behind the TV.

Its cheap as you can run it from a PPT viewer and no added software licensing past the OS.

Just build it and add it as needed.

There are other Menuboard solutions that will blow away PPT, but you will pay for them.

Just installed a 55" LCD to a pc for running presentations, loops, etc. today. Standard SVGA connection with a 2G video card. As a side note, I found the best non-flicker resoloution for this set up to be 1920x1080 at 60Hz. This allowed the display image to stretch side to side and top to bottom without distortion. Just something to think about if you get everything in place and your LCD flickers.

Forgot to add Powerpoint is the method used here for looping.
