I have an OSX mini connected to a 720p flat screen (DVI->HDMI) and can
view HD without a problem.  What resolution does your Mac report for
the LCD?
I guess I'd have to agree - it sounds like it may be a setting on the
LCD.  I'm assuming the MBP was not connected to the LCD for playback.
What happens if you try to use the MBP connected to the TV?

Oh- I'm running 0.21, not fixes, as I can't find a working OSX binary
for 0.21-fixes.  I'm assuming you compiled MythFrotend yourself?
