How do I size digital photos in Photoshop so they can be shown on a 40-inch LCD TV (actual screen size is 34.5x17.5)?

The screen size doesn't matter.

What matters is how you're getting the image onto the TV, then the pixel size and aspect ratio.

If this is an HDTV, and you are sending it an HD signal (1080p), then your image size would be 1920x1080 with a square pixel (aspect ratio of 1.0).
