I think they're trying to imply that by using a DVI to HDMI adapter, a computer that supports HDCP over a DVI output can be connected to it. Unfortunately, from what I can find, such as user reviews at NewEgg, they don't actually include such an adapter with it.

HDCP = High-bandwidth Digital Copy Protection

Basically it means you can connect the video card to the monitor to watch Blu-Ray movies or other copy protect HD video content using a DVI connection. That is assuming both monitor and video card are HDCP compliant. Nearly all video cards released in the past 3 years are HDCP compliant.

I have no experience with console games, but your issue connecting a PS3 to a PC monitor is quite common.
