Using the setup menu option on your TV look for the menu that allows
configuration of the display and look for a menu option that will allow 1:1
pixel mapping for the dsiplayed resolution. On many LG models this option is
literally called '1:1 Pixel mapping' on other LG TV's its called 'Exact
Scan'. This setting will display the full 720 or 1080 image perfectly.
All the best
