Relatively low resolution on a large display makes for big pixels!

Looks like X is choosing 1360x768 and working.  It's the TV that's being 
snooty about showing the signal it receives.  You could try forcing it 
to one of the lower modes in xorg.conf, like 1024x768.

Section "Monitor"
         Identifier   "Monitor0"
         VendorName   "TSB"
         ModelName    "205"
 	VertRefresh  59-72

Section "Screen"
         Identifier "Screen0"
         Device     "Card0"
         Monitor    "Monitor0"
         SubSection "Display"
 		Modes "1024x768"

The log shows that it gets this information from the monitor already, 
and is already trying to use the right resolution.  Hard to say what the 
TV is doing.  If it's touchy about refresh rate, that can be restricted 
to just a single rate:

 	VertRefresh  60
