Windows 7: BIOS screen stretches beyond viewable area on 42" HDTV

BIOS screen stretches beyond viewable area on 42" HDTV

This is annoying.
I'm building an HTPC using an ASUS E35M1-I Deluxe (mini ITX mobo/cpu combo). When I use the HDMI or the DVI output from the mobo to connect to the back of my 42" 720p Plasma TV and boot into BIOS the BIOS window (including POST) stretches beyond the viewable area of the TV. It's like 50% overscan.
There's quite a bit of screen on the RH side and at the bottom of the bios window that I can't access because it's outside of this area. Changing screen sizes from 16:9 to 4:3 does nothing for the overscan.

I can plug it into my normal PC monitor and it displays fine but why not the TV?

This mobo does not have a standard VGA port.
