    Is there a HiDPI setting that works well for a 1080p TV (making things crisp at the 1080p level, while still fitting things on the screen)?

    Right now I'm using 720p on a 1080p TV, just so things on the screen are readable at a normal distance (from the couch).

    Isn't there a way to set my TV to its full 1080p resolution, and have things scale, and remain sharp and crisp, including 1080p movies?

    I tried the default HiDPI setting available, and while things are sharp and scaled, they are scaled up too much, and apps no longer fit on the screen.

    Isn't there a happy medium?

    I myself would love to know since I also have to recur to your workaround. :mad:
