Mint 17.1 Mate thinks my TV is 42" when its really 32"

Am trying to use my HP Pavillion D5 to stream via HDMI to my Toshiba 32a500 32". I've been trying to duplicate displays and it almost works. The install of Mint went 100% and it detected the 1280x800 resolution perfectly. However when I try to duplicate this to the TV, the resolution changes to 1024...
