According to the link of the display you posted, it supports a resolution of 1366x768, so that will be the maximum it can display, and not your 1600x900

So in addition to what rindi just pointed out,  go into the Resolution settings of your computer and switch it to 1366x768,   some systems won't have 1366x768, it might come up 1360x768,  either should work.

To get to the Resolution settings,

Right-click on the desktop and choose "Screen Resolution"


After the above,

You might need to make slight Horizontal and Vertical adjustments in the TV's settings.

If you clone your desktops, you must either make sure both displays use the same resolution, or then don't clone, but rather extend the desktop, so part of the display is on the laptop, and the other part on the TV. That way you can use different resolutions for each device. Just drag what you want to view on the TV to the TV.
