On my TV video looks better at 1280x720 than at the native resolution of
1360x768 for two reasons:

Its picture mode presets are optimised for video in 720p modes and
PC/text in 1360x768.

Nearly everything I watch is 25fps and the TV only supports 60Hz at
1360x768.

OTOH ISTM even 576 line SDTV looks better displayed in a 720p mode than
in 576p.
