You will never get 1:1 pixel mapping and the full 1280x720 resolution displayed.
Unlike computer monitors, HDTV sets project the display on the screen such that some information is lost. They do so in normal TV viewing the close caption data and other issues are not seen.
What you want is 1:1 mapping confirmed by a test pattern, or just put a bunch of text on the screen, if its not perfect its not 1:1. Anyhow, if you get 1:1 with overscan using HDMI, you can use your video card to keep 1:1 mapping but display a smaller desktop as you did.
I'm not aware of any Sony sets that do 1:1 at all. There used to be threads 100 pages long of people getting close, but had to go into the service mode, etc. IF the A10 does offer 1:1 mapping with overscan thats great, but is sounds like there is alot of overscan too...
Please confirm if you are seeing 1:1 mapping, perfectly clear text over HDMI at 720p ?
