Neither. They're both digital signals trying to show the same thing.

HDMI is best for this. HDMI is intended as an external consumer electronics connection for HDTVs. It is rapidly replacing S-Video and component video as the primary connection to TV sets. HDMI appears on consumer monitors so that they can be connected to Blu-ray Disc players, game consoles, and other consumer electronics. This allows the monitor to be used as an entertainment display. HDMI is best found on PCs to enable connectivity to HDTVs.

Well, I just want to point out that HDMI video is the same as DVI. As for the display, copy and paste this into Explorer: Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Display\Screen Resolution . Click on the display you want to be your main and there should be an option to make it your primary.
