As it is a TV, it probably isn't giving your pc the correct info it needs to
set the proper resolution. You probably are going to have to manually set up
an xorg.conf file. You may need to search around using your tv as a reference.
I had a heck of a time doing this on my Vizio 32" TV to get it's native
1366x768 to work with fglrx and audio vis HDMI.
You probably won't fix it on the livecd, but if you did, you would still have
to set it up after installing anyway. Have you tried opening the monitor
configuration tool in System Settings to see if there is another resolution
that may be 'close' to get you a usable screen?
