Can I configure my PS3 to display videos not larger than my screen?

PS3 clipping image with HDMI at 1080p
I was watching some YouTube (*) videos on my brand new PS3, and I noticed that the video spans outside my TV screen, as shown in the following images:
Can I configure the PS3 to not span beyond the TV limits? Is this a PS3 configuration or a YouTube App configuration? (I did notice that other apps do the same though)
I've tried every option I could find on my Sony Bravia, but it's no use.
(*) It also happens when using the Netflix app. I've yet to try games, as I still don't own any.
When you start your PS3, hold the button until it beeps a second time. This will force it to re-choose an output ratio, based on which output device you are using (AV/HDMI).
If the edges are still cut off, head into Settings->Video settings and try adjusting some of the settings manually (screen resolutions etc)
If the PS3 settings don't work, try and find a menu on your TV to adjust the picture output. Try to set the output to "Screen Fit" or "Best Fit" or "Auto Adjust" etc (instead of manual).
If Auto doesn't work you'll have to manually adjust the overscan properties to shrink/stretch the image into place - but try to avoid this if possible - 9 times out of 10 you won't need to do this.
These are just suggestions based on some troubleshooting I was doing when I moved my PS3 onto my new TV, I hope they help
