Default PC to HDTV resolution problem-questions; Help?! :)

Ok, I finally got mine 37" HDTV (ViewSonic) connected by DVI to HDMI cable to get my computer screen on big screen. But I ran into some issues which I was not able to resolve yet. I have P4 3.0GHz HT, 1.5GB RAM, 200GB SATA, 7600GT 256MB, etc. My video card gives me all kinds of settings but I was not able to get the whole picture on my HDTV edge to edge. I get my 22" LCD monitor at 1680x1050 resolution and selected the output as CLONE (don't need extended screen) - just to show on HDTV what's on my PC monitor. On the HDTV I get the picture that's missing task-bar and some icons in the first row on the top of my PC monitor. Picture is blurry due to settings stating 1080i. I was all thrilled like "GOTCHA" and changed that to 720p - BUT, my monitor got changed to 1280x720 (which is original 720p resolution). Now, I changed HDTV settings not my monitor settings!?! On the HDTV I got EXCELLENT HD picture that was amazing but now my monitor shows 1280x720 resolution regardless of native 1680x1050 (22" LCD monitor).

Can you guys help me how to do this: To have my monitor at it's native resolution 1680x1050 and keep my HDTV on 720p output???

Thanks a lot!
