HG20 Mts files.

I have the HG20 and have the settings set as high as they go (MXP, LW, S.) So I assume my videos are HD (1920x1080.) When I play the .mts files on my computer (Athlon II X4 630 2.8ghz Quad Core, 4gig DDR3 1600, Windows 7 Ultimate RC) in Windows Media Player 12 @ 100%, they do not fill my screen like I would expect. My monitor resolution is 1600x1200 (CRT, VGA.) They play just fine but are only in a small window (about 800x600.) Am I doing something wrong? Are these videos really HD or not? Does the transfer method from camcorder to PC matter? I don't have the software that cam with the camera installed. I just plugged in the USB and copied the .mts files to my harddrive.
