    If your tv is 720P open up the system preferences and hit the display button. then set the resolution to 720p mode. Try messing with turning overscan on or off ( depends on your tv I have to turn it off personally ) and also mess with the picture modes on your tv.

    If your TV has a mode that says something like "pixel for pixel" or "original" or "source" thats probably the right picture mode. Also if your TV is 1080p or i etc there are special modes for each.
