I have connected my PC to the TV with a DVI to HDMI cable. In nVidia settings, I set the output to HDTV and 480p (native on the TV) as the resolution. The picture is clear, but too big for the screen. Icons on the far left are cut in half, and the start bar is also cut in half. Dialog boxes and other 3D objects on the desktop are much too big, only seeing the middle of some dialog boxes, not able to see the menu bar, or buttons on the bottom. Is there any way to fix this? The TV does not allow the picture to be resized in HD sources (component, HDMI).

I would guess the resolution is wrong if things are cut off. Try using 1024x768 or 1280x960 for widescreen.

Higher resolutions only worsen the cutoff on the edges, as in, I lose more of the desktop.

Yea. I'm at a loss on this one. Maybe it doesn't work? I've read the TV manual to no avail. Maybe I can call Panasonic.
