Well I have a older Samsung and I don't have a "PC" setting as such. I do have a VGA port that is listed as PC but that's not HDMI and is not better. Maybe your referring to something on newer Samsungs.

It looks much better now ( text, fonts ) but i cant understand why i have no acces to SHARPNESS / TINT / COLOURS + a lot of options from Advanced Control.
I can set the name to PC so it shows as "HDMI2 PC" (using HDMI port 2) which sounds like all your doing.
EDIT: Although this would make no difference to the appearence if that's all it does.

I can't adjust a lot of my setting including my sharpness unless my resolution is set to one under "HD,SD" in the NVidia Control Panel, eg. 1080p, 720p. If it's set to any of the resolutions under "PC" then it's a no go.

I also don't have a sharpness setting in the NVidia Control Panel either.

EDIT: I don't use DVI though, straight HDMI to HDMI. This may be a reason too.

HDMI settings are limited, period. The FCC's standards prevent a majority of the modifications that you would be able to make with a monitor. On some older GPUs, you were able to use an adapter to connect video signal via component cables. This connection allowed for much more modifications. Using DVI and HDMI, or any derivative thereof, is going to limit what you can change.

EDIT:If you want to learn more about restrictions set forth by the FCC, just Google FCC and HDMI or DVI.

Well havn't read anything to do with the FCC I just accepted it as I personally don't have a problem.

As I said, under the "HD,SD" resolutions I do have full control of my TV settings so if stereo does he may find this a sutible solution. If 1080p is to small for reading he could try playing around with the DPI settings but I find 720p is too low of a resolution.
