I dont think digikam has anything to do with it, digikam will use what
is reported by X-Windows. It could be some settings in Xorg or it
could be your TV. In my experience LCD TV's will often as default try
to fill the whole screen on the TV no matter what the input resolution
is and if the input  has a 4:3 aspect ratio it will stretch the
picture giving it wrong aspect ratio.
