Ok , any helpful tips for using a 1080p hdtv , 55", as a monitor. I sit about 14 ft away and when gaming at 1080 I can't really read any text in games. Using a lower resolution works, of course, but the extent I have to decrease the resolution in order to read without strain is simply unacceptable. And just to take care of this ahead of time: yes, I am getting older, yes I have nearly correct vision.

If any developers read this, please include a big screen TV mode with larger text at higher resolutions so I can enjoy the awesome graphics and still play without having to get up from the couch.

Try upping the DPI.

Edit: That's what I get for not reading your post that thoroughly. Unfortunately, I don't think that will help you in games.
