It seems like DVI > HDMI is the way to go. I'm curious if there's something different about my set.
Can you test VGA and see if it underscan the picture there?
Thanks for the pictures and any info!
Honestly i'm not exactly sure what underscan and overscan is.
The view on my computer monitor seemed to match the view on the sammy so they looked identical.
One thing i noticed. With the other 2 hdmi ports (cable &ps3) in the 16x9 mode it looks like some of the image is off the screen. With just scan mode i can visibly see the imarge reduce some so more of a scene appears on the screen. Not much so i think it might only be like 2-3% reduction.
With the pc dvi to hdmi connection the "just scan" mode is not available. You get 4:3, wide tv, wide pc. Since my pc has a widescreen monitor i used the wide pc option which fits the entire screen correctly. If you use Wide TV then the edges are off the screen.
And yes i set the screen rez on the pc to 1920x1080
Not 100% sure why the "just scan" mode isn't available. You can edit the source list so you can assign a preprogrammed periipheral name to your port. IE...hdmi = cable, hdmi 2 - game (for the ps3) and hdmi/dvi = pc. Possibly by tagging the port as PC it made some internal adjustments. I just played with this and setting the hdmi input source with the PC tag doesn't only name it so you know whats connected it does change the settings. When I switch is from any of the choices to PC the screen flicks and the display colors changed. I seemed to have enhanced the color and text some by changing the display settings from "movie" to dynamic or standard.
Also would seem that the Display settings are unique to each input source. So you can customize them for your sources. I only did the 3 HDMI ones. Havent tried the composite VCR ones yet but probably the same.
Can't try the VGA cable. Computer is too far from the TV which is why i went with a 25 foot dvi2hdmi cable.
