Specs: Linux Mint 17.2, AMD Phenom II x4 955 B.E. Deneb 3.2Ghz/ 8Gig Ram
I have a HD LED TV set as my computer monitor. This monitor has a native resolution of 1360x768, 16:9 ratio; it is HD 720p.

In my computer I have an XFX ATI Radeon HD 5770 Video Card capable of 1920x1050 resolution and also 16:9 ratio.

I set these to the higher 1920x1050 resolution. Everything looks fine, the aspect ratio is the same, more screen real-estate.

Do you think it will harm my TV/Monitor ?

Thank you.

Yes 1920x1050 is virtually 16:9. I see no reason why this should cause any damage.

[Changing the refresh rate is another matter though]

Now, Does changing the resolution change the refresh rate ?

Nope, resolution is the number of pixels but refresh rate is scanning frequency in Hz.
