Re: DVI->HDMI quality issues
This is going to depend on your tv. Not all TV's were made with PC's in mind and thus won't necessarily allow for 1:1 pixel scaling. Worse, some force overscanning which means you won't see the outer edge of your screen. I'd look at your TV manual, or maybe google search to find if it allows for 1:1 pixel scaling.
