Fired up my Pi with HDMI connected to a 1080p wide screen TV.
Fired up Raspbian Wheezy.
The picture of the raspberry looks fine, but all the text is very poor - almost unreadable.
I was expecting a display with a similar resolution to a PC monitor. The PC I am posting from is in 1920 * 1080 native mode and the font below the icons looks good and the text within a terminal window is also very clear.
So is there some basic difference using HDMI as opposed to DVI/VGA?
Is the graphics chip on the Pi much less able than the average PC?
Or is there something which needs modifying to get a decent screen resolution?
