Windows 7: ATI 6950 on LG TV

ATI 6950 on LG TV

Hi guys just upgraded my HTPC aka bought a new one.
The old one had an NVIDIA card that displayed and still does 1920x1080 just fine. By that I mean that image perfectly fits the whole screen.

With ATI I have black borders and due to that stretched/compressed really blurry image. The weired thing is when I try to add custom resolution in Catalyst Control it displays 1920x1080 as full screen until I cancel out of that menu. Changing resolution to 1910x1080 solves the problem for windowed apps but does not for games. Any ideas?

Win7x64 clean install
latest ATI drivers

I played around some more with Catalyst Controll and first enabled scaling then set overscan to 0 then disabled gpu scaling. Seems like that fixed it.
