Computer and TV Display

  1. I have a Vizio 47" 1080p LCD that I can hook my computer up to and use the 1080 resolution on. The problem is that when I go to do this on my friends 26" 720 LCD TV and my uncles 65" 1080p TV, the picture is always too big for the display (some is cut off). I match the resolution of the TVs with the resolution of my computer but still no luck. Even when I use the computers 720 resolution on my uncles 1080 TV it looks to big. Yes I know that some TV say 1080 but are really 720 native and whatnot. I've checked the manuals and everything should line up but I have no luck. Can anyone help?

    What exact cable are you using to connect the TV sets? It looks like the TV set is trying to display at standard TV resolution and not HDTV.
