Analog vs DIV on monitors from dell
I have the dell 24" monitor and it has numerous different connections (as
already mentioned below).
I am not sure how typical the on screen menu is for other models.
But on this one there is a "set source" button that scans the various inputs
for a signal.
Once found it uses that as the default each time it starts up. (unless you
change it again).
I would guess that the message is due to an auto detect that is scanning for
the source every time it starts up.
If you set it to one particular source it might stop the message.
However I have noted that even when locked onto DVI I get a DVI connector
symbol displayed briefly on the screen.
All in all its not a big deal
