XFree86 resolution or TNT2 + TV-out

I am running Red Hat 9.0, XFree86 4.3 and TNT2 w/ TV out. I installed this driver and everything seems to work fine.

The only problem is that the display is a little bit smooshed. There are vertical black bands on either side of the TV screen. KDE doesn't take up all the space on the screen. This is annoying when watching DivX.

I found that when using mplayer I could make everything fit nicely by pressing 'C' and cycling through the different resolutions while in full screen mode. However, I'd like to have things work normally. I'm assuming this is a problem with my XF86config.

Relevant parts of my XF86config:

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
ModelName "unknown"
VendorName "unknown"
HorizSync 30-90
VertRefresh 50-60
Option "DPMS"
Modeline "1024x768_TV" 48.16 1024 1048 1112 1216 768 768 769 791
Modeline "800x600_TV" 28.24 800 816 856 912 600 600 601 618
Modeline "640x480_TV" 17.62 640 648 672 712 480 480 481 494
Modeline "400x300_TV" 6.68 400 408 416 432 300 300 300 309

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "RIVA TNT2"
Option "NoLogo" "0"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "TV"
Option "TVOutFormat" "NTSC"
