Graphics Card not matching TV's resolution

While I'm waiting on my monitor, I've hooked up my rig to the TV with a HDMI cable going to my GTX 670. The TV is a 1080p, but whenever I choose 1920x1080, it's larger than what is on the screen. I went as far as having a factory reset but still, no dice. I semi-circumvented this by going into NVIDIA control panel and resizing to a custom resolution. The "Recommended" is at 720p. Whenever I choose that, it seems like a different aspect.
Any clues?

  1. Best answer
    Set 1920/1080 on PC and try to set Picture ratio or zoom mode on your TV.

    Also you may try to mess with overlay settings in Nvidia control panel.

    Seconded. Try Full or Normal as well. If worst comes to push, get a VGA adapter and use that.
  3. There is a setting in your control panel called "Overscan". No guarantees but I'd play with that, reduce the scan percent.

    I wouldn't recommend that. It really makes it look like crap for some reason.
