Hmmm. I thought they could do 1080i in other non-free OSes, so I bet
it's not a hardware limitation. I mean, they say they can do
2048x1526 (or more depending on the card) over vga. A linux driver
issue is possiable, though (which might include firmware if that is
loaded by the driver.)
I'd give it a try, but I don't yet have a device with a dvi connection.
