I've not seen this port before, it looks kind of like a HDMI port and has this symbol next to it... what is it?

It's on the back panel of a desktop computer.

Could you run the image through a few blur filters? It's too sharp. :P –  Phoshi Mar 11 '10 at 16:39

Can you post a picture of the port as well? –  dsolimano Mar 11 '10 at 16:41

That's a DisplayPort. It's a video connector. It can be converted to HDMI, DVI, S-video or Analog VGA if needed.

"DisplayPort is a digital display interface standard put forth by the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) since 2006. It defines a new royalty-free, digital audio/video interconnect, intended to be used primarily between a computer and its display monitor, or a computer and a home-theater system."
