  I do not have solution, but I experience this bug also on completly
different hardware: some Nvidia GeForce 5xxx card, Panasonic 32" (1280x720)
connected via HDMI. Driver is nouveau as available in Fedora 12.
  Picture stretches over the edge, pixels are blurred. It isn't problem
of TV setting, it offers few "zoom" modes, neither looks fine.
  As my HW is different, but problem the same, it may be something
in X server itself, not drivers. I suggest opening a bug.
