Hmmm ... well I might be doing something wrong ... but my first
impression is what I'm seeing in text mode (haven't gotten X to
start yet). With HDMI/DVI, though the terminal does creep off the
screen (meaning I can't actually see the cursor :-)), the clarity
of the ascii chars is crystal; with the PC input, the letters are
blurry and seem to be be shuddering quite a bit.

Interesting ... so that means you've actually gotten the DVI/HDMI output
on the ATI working with your Samsung? Weird about the delay ... I wonder
if it has to do with the fact that DVI is only video and you're using anothe
source for audio input from your PC to the TV (rather than using the HDMI
audio which would be ideal if there was a video card that supported HDMI).
