Do some Google searches, and/or search the MythTV archives. The HDTV
modes are standard.
a good starting point; also see Jarod's pages.
How are you planning to connect the PC to the HDTV? VGA direct?
VGA->Component adaptor? DVI?

It depends on your TV. If it's a plasma or LCD with 720p as its native
resolution, then yes, 1280x720 is what you want. If it's a CRT with
1080i as its native resolution, you probably want 1080i (or 540p, or
"540pw", which is 1920x540). Or if it's a plasma or projector with some
other native resolution, use that and let the video card do all the scaling.
