Default TV won't stay zoomed out

I'm having a problem diplaying video on my TV through my S-video cable, I have it set up to display full screen video on my secondary monitor (TV). The problem is that it zooms in on every video I try to watch, no matter what program I use to watch it with, this makes the video displaying on my TV get cut off on all 4 edges. I can go into my settings and zoom out after the video has started playing (I can pause it and make the adjustments), and I've zoomed out without a video playing to try and make it stick that way. But it just keeps going back to being zoomed in and cutting off the edges everytime I start up a new video file.

Is there anyway to make it stay zoomed out? I use a GeForce 6600GT and the TV is an RCA 27'' TruFlat HDTV Monitor.

You need to adjust your dual monitor settings so that both monitor and TV are set to the same resolution.

You're TV resolution is probably set much lower then your monitor.
