Lightbulb 1080i only takes up 16:9

Hi, I've installed nvidia and am using component out to output to a projection HDTV in the hope of making a Linux MythTV box. Unfortunatly, it doesn't use the full screen, only a box that looks 169, and it flickers like hell. How do I fix this? I've attached my xorg.conf, any help would be greatly appreciated.

The xorg.conf

# values from the debconf database.
