DVI & HDMi are basically the same signal with the exception of audio. I don't think it would make a difference

Actually I've found that using the component out cable to the component in on the TV gave a far superior picture to the direct DVI to DVI on my tv. I have not tried HDMI on my TV but if it's the same as DVI, maybe try using the "RGB" component cables instead?

I connect my PC to my 40" Samsung 1080p using a dvi to hdmi cable, the picture is perfect!!

If you buy a cable don't be fooled into buying an expensive one, there is no need!!
Mine cost me 14 pounds for a 1.5 mtr cable

I think some are missing the issue that I am having. I have a great picture. There is not a quality issue. The issue is the sizing on text and windows on the TV. If you look at one the the pictures I posted you can see that either the text is way way too small, or if I magnify, the bottom of the windows is below the taskbar at the bottom.

You say your image quality is ok but those pictures of your browser text are horrid.

Set you TV to 1080P, use good HDMI cabling, adjust Windows 7 for cleartype text and slightly turn down the sharpness on your TV.

I am running Windows 7 on a 52" 1080P 7 series Samsung and the imaging is almost better than on my 24" acer monitor upstairs.

Once you get it the way you like remember to save it as a profile if you can. My hdmi switching receiver lets me do that, one for bluray, one for htpc, one for tv ,etc.

I am getting no where. If I set the resolution to 1080P then the text is too small to read. If I increase the text to 150% or higher then windows to do not fit on the screen. I am using an HDMI cable. I have adjusted the Cleartype and the contrast of my TV. The cleartype and contrast has NOTHING to do with the size of the text and windows. MY ISSUE IS NOT PICTURE QUALITY.
