Did you try forcing to 16:9 (not auto)?
And it is a TV problem... Well, TV makers don't see it as problem. That is why we have TVs and monitors. Even 1920x1080 TV's don't do 1-to-1 pixel mapping by default. It's stupid design choice, but every TV maker does overscaning. On some models they offer you to disable it, but it's not disabled by default (I researched this when I bought my 42" TV - this was my elimination criteria).
I don't know why, I can only speculate, but maybe to offer a "softer" image or because the early SD-to-HD scalers showed black margins (since SD 480p and 576p always had "undisplayable" margins).

I don't know what GPU you have, but both AMD and nVidia offer you ways to counter the overscanning.

Regarding VGA, I have too little information. It could be unsupported refresh rate (50Hz vs 60Hz). But does it also zoom?

I have a EVGA Nvidia GeForce 8400 gs it's bad for gaming but great for everything else.
