Maybe it is the TV?  I know at least some have 'per-input' settings.  We've sometimes had one input or another get into a zoom mode.  I blame the kids; that's a lot safer than suggesting my wife might have pressed a button!  Was your MacBook Pro connected to precisely the same input?

Other than that, I take it you're running under OSX?  Are you using DisplayConfigX or similar?
