So, Which Was Better?
Although using both drivers achieved the same end results, nVidia ForceWare was much, much easier to use. Although I don't mind having to go through various advanced settings in a driver to get the right result, many people do and won't be impressed at the level of manual tweaking you have to do with Catalyst.
The biggest problem with the Catalyst approach actually had more to do with something I mentioned earlier in the article - resolutions. Because HDTV resolutions are greater than the TV's native resolution, the desktop image isn't very clear. When using the nVidia Control Panel this isn't much of a problem because the images are large, there's not much detail on each screen, and all the components are well laid out. With Catalyst Control Center, there's a huge amount of information to sift through, and when the image isn't particularly crisp it makes life much harder.
So for me, nVidia's implementation of HDTV support in its drivers is better - simpler, clearer and easier, and achieves exactly the same end result.
