It's possible to compensate on the computer side (this might be necessary if you have a CRT or projector), but it's better to start on the TV side.
This is one of those things that sometimes you can never get perfect! I always had to have the HD display of my Acer Revo inset a bit.

Please do not send me support requests via PM.
