You will not be loosing any res, display port is capable at very high resolutions, I am running my 1440p monitor over DP right now.

Display port is better for monitors, but I would use a hdmi on your tv for the ease of sound thru your tv.

DP also transmit sound.
In my head I was thinking easy because you can just plug hdmi into your tv and have sound and DP into your screen, but I forget that not all screens have DP.
