The Nvidia driver did what I needed. There was a NKeystone menu that
allowed me to shrink the image so that it fit on my HDTV. A problem
I'm still having is that the "Keystone" adjustment doesn't always
hold. If I run Flight Simulator the window reverts back to it's too
big size. I can't see or use the top part of the screen.
I suspect the top part of the screen is cut off for broadcast TV as
well, particularly when I'm using the 4.3 aspect. The brand of TV is
AKAI and it isn't very user friendly. The "customer care" is even
worse. I'll bet there is a way to make adjustments but Akai isn't
volunteering any info on how.
So my original question has been answered. Nvidia has a "Keystone"
adjustment that did the trick.
Thank you for all your help;
