How to achieve perfect output resolution to TV?

So, my Panasonic 42" Plasma will do 720p and I have my Mac Mini hooked up and ready to go. The Snow Leopard 720p preset looks great except the menu bar at the top of my screen is mostly missing. Is there third party software or some hidden setting that will allow me to have more precise control of the output to fit the TV dimensions properly?

Brady, check to see if there is an option to turn off overscan on your TV. this will let you gain back the ~5% you lose to overscan.

I actually tried that and the result was smaller than the TV display dimensions. Is there no happy medium? :(

hmm.. Also make sure the aspect ratio is right.. I know my tv has some funny settings.. Apart from 16:9 and 4:3 it has "full" and "just" maybe overscan and full would be the right size?

hooking up my mac minin to a hotel LED via HDMI, and lost the top menu, then went in to System Preferences to Display and uncheck overscan and display return to normal

I also have a mac mini attached to an LCD TV. Go to display settings In the system prefs of the mac, and make sure that overscan is checked "on" in the options tab.. On the TV, make sure its set to "dot by dot" or whatever setting correctly maps the pixels 1 to 1. In other words, all zooming and other resizing features must be off. On my TV, the setting is called "view mode", and I cycle through until "dot by dot" is selected.

This page explains why, sadly, a TV will never look as good as a monitor, when hooked up to a computer.

Long story short, lots of legacy TV and broadcasting baggage means a "television", even with a nice, perfect, digital HDMI connection, won't ever be sharp.

Does not the 'detect display's button in system preferences automatically determine the screen dimensions necessary?

And have you checked that the aspect ratio of your TV is possible for the mini?

Detect displays did nothing. I tried all of the preset aspect ratios and none of them fit properly. I am looking for possibly a third party software method.

If your TV has an 'exotic' resolution, use SwitchResX to fit it exactely.
