fierce_gt^^^ not sure if applicable. but my HTPC has different settings for 'desktop' and 'video player'. I've been able to get what I consider good results for web browsing, while still maintaining great results for media playback.
Don't know why they need a switch for TV /PC use on the same screen.OTOH maybe for different setting of the TV mode it may be sending different image calibrations or user adjustments or even resolutions in TV mode and something else for PC desktop scaling and image optimisation for PC use that sounds cool though I could see it no prob. probably a good idea .
That Sammie f8500 is whole different enchilada from my 60 F5300 nice set ! that's about all I can say there!
I have my two screens set up in AMD Catalyst 14XX somewhat different with each being optimized for the TV or PC monitor you can run one or the other or both at the same time and in the Studio I have 2 PC monitors + a TV running off the PC in there each with its own settings from the vid card . Both PC connected TV's are 40" LED's here .
The PS3 takes care of HT duty ,wifi video streaming Netflix ,Amazon Prime ,PSN and wifi LAN DLNA streaming here .
on the Sammie PDP real good video processor wifi DLNA streamer and BD player with the PS3 .
I never use the Plasma screen as a computer it seems counter intuitive to me as do HTPC computers in general although a lot of folks like them, when you can have DNLA ,a LAN ,PS3 and 3 other PC's with one being a media server in another room all on the LAN .
PS 3 is basically an XMBC browser on steroids you can call up or stream anything you need
or play a videogame or DVD/BD greatest thing since sliced bread if you set it up right .
IF I want to encode /transcode rip or burn something something I can bring to the hot rodded overclocked daily driver in here or put several things in a cue and let it do it's thing and at the same time be using this for something or a few other things at the same time without it breaking a sweat but it's all good whatever works 4 each of us .
