It's likely the native resolution your LCD is 1366x768, most are. Look in the manual and set it to that.

Personally though I'd leave the resolution the same as the original (whatever it is) as resizing will only make the video huge and you may as well let your TV resize it.

That's to be expected if the source material is in 4:3. When it comes to DVD Players I switch to 4:3 or 4:3 LBX which fixes this (and then switch back to 16:9 afterwards) but that maybe tricky with a computer.
