Graphical Problems while in Fullscreen

I'm having some very odd problems across all of my games when they are run in Fullscreen mode. Firstly, in-game text appears corrupted (the letters will have black coloring to certain parts making the text hard to read), this happens in many games including: LOTR Online, Civ 4, Deus Ex Human Revolution and it appears slightly in Skyrim. After months of testing I've found that it only happens while I play the games in a fullscreen mode; while in a Windowed setting the problem stops. I have also noticed that many, if not all, games don't appear to do Anti-Aliasing properly. No matter how high the setting is, I still get jaggies. Yet, when I switch to a windowed mode, there are no jaggies at all.

Since I use a 150% DPI, using windowed mode is not practical, since the windowed screen never matches my other screen and I have to first disable the DPI to play the game. I'm currently using a Sony Bravia 1080p HDTV as a monitor, connected to my GTX 580 card via an HDMI cable.

I've attached my DXDIAG for reference.

So, can anyone figure out why these problems would only occur in a fullscreen mode? I am completely stumped. My only guess would be my TV switching its picture settings. It is normally on it's PC Graphics setting when I am using the computer, but it automatically switches to a Game "scene select" whenever a videogame is started. Of course, while in Windowed mode this transition does not happen, which could explain this problem; I'm not sure. I cannot stop this transition, as it appears to be hardcoded into the TV or something.

Thoughts?

Well, I managed to figure it out. Turns out it was the TV causing all of the problems. I also managed to find a button on my remote that I somehow never noticed in over a year. Now the scene select is turned off, and everything works great.
