You want the output signal coming from your computer to match the native resolution of the screen. You may need the manual or an online spec sheet.
So if your 22" has a native resolution of 1680x1050, you want to set your computer to output that resolution.
If your TV has a native resolution of 1280x720 (720p), you want to set for that.
You probably have your resolution set too low for the 22" and it's scaling up the lower resolution, which would scale better on a 720p TV. This would cause a degradation in the picture quality that's quite noticeable. Setting the resolution correctly will yield a better picture from the 22" if your TV is a 720p. Your system should be able to handle these resolutions just fine.
