Okay i managed to get the 'nice video quality' via my PC as well. Here's what I did:
In the source settings of the screen (Samsung), I went to tools. My computer was now set as DVI-PC in the settings of the monitor. I changed it to PC and it stayed the same. Then I changed it to DVD (or TV) and it changed. Now when I play a movie via the PC it shows the nice video quality/colors etc of how it shows it when playing directly from a harddisk; perfect. I have dual monitor setup (2x same monitor). Here's a preview of what it looks like now.https://dl.dropbox.com/u/14333146/screen/IMG_1433.JPG
Close-up left screen (TV function): https://dl.dropbox.com/u/14333146/screen/IMG_1434.JPG
Close-up right screen (PC function): https://dl.dropbox.com/u/14333146/screen/IMG_1435.JPG
The left screen has the TV function enabled, the right one has the PC function enabled. As you can see, the colors on the right screen are very dull, no sharpened/obvious edges on the grass and check how nice the grass looks like on the left screen compared to the right screen. On the left screen (tv function) it has more depth, you can like individually separate the blades of grass; they have more 'depth'. That's what I mean with my interpretation of 'depth of field'.However, there's a problem.
When I put the monitor on the TV setting, movies look fine, but normal webbrowsing/desktop etc looks **** up:

PC function: http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer ... 9.usr1.jpg
The text and icons etc on the TV function look awful. The text is hard to read, and the icons looked terrible. There was a weird "ghosting" effect around the text as well. I went into the TV settings and turned down the 'Sharpness' to 0. That fixed this issue mostly but text is still harder to read than on the PC function. Also, when I compare the TV function with the standard sharpness vs the TV function with the sharpness at 0 (for movies), sharpness at 0 doesn't look as good as the standard sharpness (for movies). But the text looks aweful with this standard sharpness lol.
Also I noticed when I set the setting on the monitor as TV/DVD, there is a delay in mouse movement. So when I move my mouse, it takes a few miliseconds for the mouse to move on the screen. Pretty annoying (definitely for gaming).
So I guess the best thing for me to do is just keep my screens at the PC setting. And only when I wanna watch a movie I'll have to put it to TV setting then. Or does anyone have any other ideas?
