Well, let's see. To force a resolution to be used, you have to have that one resolution checked and all the others unchecked. There's games and apps that don't support 1080p, which you can't force on, which will probably support 720p. But, if the game or app supports 720p, but not 1080p, and have 720p unchecked, the resolution will switch to 480i or p or whichever one it is. 480 is a 4:3 resolution, so if you have the screen set to 16:9, it will stretch that 4:3 to 16:9. I'm not sure why some games and apps haven't been supporting 1080p lately.

It has nothing to do with the resolution of the game if it is a PS3 game. Video that is in 720p won't be stretched because it has the same aspect ratio as 1080p video. It is just lower in resolution. The PS3 will stretch DVD video to fit the screen if the Video Settings indicate that it should, but that is only for disks and PS1/PS2 software; not PS3 games or apps. Stretching the video is something that TVs do also. Check the display options on your TV and make sure that it isn't set to zoom or otherwise change the display from its normal dimensions.

Thanks guys for trying. I played around today with all the settings i could get a hold of on the PS3 video option. its just so wierd. I cannot get it to fix itself. Even checked the TV settings and they are all fine.
Its just the BF3 game that gets stretched. Everything else plays fine. All COD, netflix everything. I even called up BF3 support and they could not help me either. I am stringly starting to suspect that there is something in the BF3 game that is forcing my AV receiver to think its downscaled and its upscaling it.
Unfortunately because of the stretching, i cannot goto to the settings menu in BF3. Next step i am going to bypass the AV receiver and try it directly to the TV and see what happens. Stay tunes!
