I have a Samsung HDTV/monitor.
As for being unable to choose the TV's native resolution on your 11z, try finding a monitor "driver" file (.inf) for your screen. In general, 1366x768 screens are difficult to get perfect, since 1366x768 cannot be precisely described by EDID. EDID is the way computer screens communicate their abilities.
As for the "cut" image, overscan is when the image is cut off because it's too large for the screen. I have a few ideas for fixing it. On my Samsung, to get it to display the entire image over HDMI, without overscan, I need to play with the "P.SIZE" button on the remote until "Just Scan" is selected. Or go through the menus to find the same setting, as described above.
But I still wasn't satisfied with it as a computer monitor over HDMI until I renamed the input "PC" (input naming is in the menus somewhere). On my Samsung, an input named "PC" gets treated in a more PC-appropriate manner. If you're using the TV for video playback, not as a monitor, the name change probably isn't needed.
Also, I'm not sure how these overscan settings will interact with different resolutions. I have to drop to a lower resolution when playing some demanding games, and my Samsung doesn't treat lower resolutions the same as perfect native resolution (1080p in my case, 1366x768 in yours). I'd try to get perfect native (1366x768) resolution working first, then work on overscan.
