Have you tried 800x600 setting. Works for me.

I routinely use a projector attached to a secondary display output.

In the Display settings, you will need to choose "clone" if you want to see the same on the TV as on the computer display (called clone in my nvidia driver - can't vouch for others)

Or if you really do want to extend your screen onto a second display, then likely all you will see is the wallpaper, until you drag something across onto the 2nd screen.
