Default Picture Quality on 1080p television with HD 4200 and HDMI

Hey all.
System specs are as follows:
ASUS|M4A785TD-M EVO 785G RT (On board ATI HD 4200)
Phenom 2
1080p Panasonic Viera (40 something inch)
HDMI cable
Windows 7 (64)
This setup is used for internet videos, blue ray and standard dvd viewing.

I got the sound and overscan issues solved with minimal trouble. Finding the overscan options in catalyst were a hassle as they had them hidden pretty well. My only remaining complaint is the picture quality. It does not appear to be pushing 1080p to the television. Grainy picture in other words. I have the resolution pushed up to the max xxx/1080 (running from memory on that).

Does anyone know which settings in Catalyst I can tweak to make the picture look better? I also saw that it looks like I might be able to force the catalyst to send in 1080p, but not real sure how to go about that.

The irony is that Ubuntu had an unbelievable picture quality without changing any settings, but netflix does not support linux. So I installed windows 7 and have had nothing but trouble. I know the video can be amazing, now I just need to figure out how to make it happen in windows 7.

Thanks for any help, if you need more info let me know.
