Using an HDTV as a monitor.

I use an HDTV as a monitor right now, with a windows PC.


It's 1080p. When the resolution is set to 1920x1080, stuff on the sides gets cut off. So what I do is use the nvidia control panel to shrink it until I get 1824x1020 where everything is visible, and only go back to 1080p to view 1080p video since the overscan is negligible compared to the quality loss from resizing video like that.


Can I do this if I get a macbook pro? I use a DVI-D ---> HDMI cable right now to hook to the TV. I'd like to be able to use this as a screen since 1824x1020 @ 50" is a bit roomier for logic than 15" 14**x9**..
