Major frustrations with resolution settings using LCD TV

Graphics card = ATI Radeon x1300/x1550
OS = Windows 7 Ultimate
Monitor = Philips LCD HDTV, model 23PF5320, connected to PC via DVI-D--DVI-D cable. Desktop is brand new.

I can't get the right screen resolution, and all settings but the smallest (640x480 and 720x480) make any floating windows flicker (but not stationary icons--they're just a little blurry). With the two smallest settings, like 30% of the desktop fills up the TV and everything's all giant-- but the image is perfectly clear (and very pretty, MAN I want to get this to work). Any larger resolution than that, and the flickering happens. How the heck to I get the screen to fit my TV, and make the flickering go away?

TV's listed resolution is 1366x768; W7 recommends 1920x1080. Under the 'advanced settings/monitor' tab, the screen refresh rate is shown as 30 HZ, Interlaced... and I feel like that's not right either. (there is no other option to select in that dropdown menu)

I downloaded ATI's W7 drivers and control center, but messing around in there didn't seem to help anything, though there are a lot of things that I don't know how to use. Halp!

I found an S-video cable to connect with; it immediately fixed the over/underscan issues, but is incredibly blurry.
