Recently bought a new laptop (Samsung E452-JA01UK) and I've been trying to get it connected to my 32 inch Samsung TV (LE32R51BD) so that I can watch some HD movies and TV. I'm connecting it with an HDMI cable. I can get the picture to display on my TV, however I cannot get the resolution correct at all.
The 2 obvious choices are 1920 x 1080 and 1280 x 720. However, with both of these resolutions there will be part of the screen hanging off the top and side of the TV so that I can't see the full picture.
Trying other resolutions with result in there being large black borders around the edge of the screen and fonts appearing 'squashed' so they don't read correctly.
It seems like it should be an easy thing to fix but I just can't fathom it out. Anybody encountered similar problems and have a solution to this?
