Unfortunately, that is just the way it is. When you ar watching your results on a TV anything between 10 and 20 percent will be lost due to the technicalities of the television. Incidentally this is true regardless of whether you watch on a 14inch TV or a 32inch TV. And it is also true regardless of what NLE package you use. Most videographers over come this by framing their shots accordingly to begin with.

decided to squeeze a little more resolution out of the footage by utilising a "moving path" within mediastudio to shrink the picture to within the safe area.
So unfortunately there is no way of avoding the 'loss'. The real answer lies in framing you shots before hand.
