Problems with connecting TV through HDMI as second monitor

By isstigma ·
I have a TV (Philips 32PFL6007T/12) and want to connect it to my PC as second monitor so i bought an HDMI cable but i get downscaled image. I've connected PC, chosen correct source and getting low resolution (in windows settings it says that i have 1920x1080 but it's 1280x720 but when i'm changing resolution to 1280x720 for TV in Windows, elements of OS are resizing so it looks weird for me, like Windows thinks that image is really 1920x1080). I don't have this problem when i'm connecting TV to PC with VGA cable but i can't stick to this since my main monitor doesn't have HDMI connector. Also i tested it with my laptop and found out that i experience same problem with HDMI cable and everything is ok with VGA.
Videoadapter: GTX650. Windows 8.1 (have no idea about laptop specs but there is also Windows 8.1 installed. Also i have laptop with Win7 and problem is the same if that matters)
