Default Play movie on PC/Watch on WS TV

I have the Nvidia Gforce FX 5500 (Driver 77.72)
Connected to it is a 15" LCD and a 42" Plasma WS TV connected VGA-VGA

I've been playing with settings for months trying to get the display on the TV to show movies played from the PC in Fullscreen Widescreen. (WS DVD's)
The best I can seem to get is a letterboxed movie when the TV is in 4:3 mode. When watching Cable, I can always switch to "zoom 1" and have a non-HD letterboxed movie go to full screen WS. With the VGA connection on the TV, my only display options on the TV are 16:9 & 4:3.

What am I missing? I know there has to be something simple somewhere. I've tried DualView/Clone settings. I've tried making the TV the primary display. Tried many different display settings. If I burn the DVD it plays fine. There are many times I'd rather just watch it from the PC and there really no reason it shouldn't play there?

Software used have been Media Player, PowerDVD, WinDVD, & Nero Showtime.

Now I also have a problem with all video played on my PC looking milky but the video on the TV looks fine.

any ideas here?
