]What TV/monitor *does* this work on?  Certainly it's not a standard ATSC

I'm using an old IBM P260, which I believe is a rebranded Sony monitor.
It's a nice monitor, it can handle 1920x1440 progressive at 75hz, but I
got it from a junk dealer for cheap. I think the P275 is the current
top of the line from IBM.

The phosphor is not designed for low refresh rates so I needed something
faster. Right now I'm using 1920x1080 progresive at 90 hz, which I want
to make work with MythTV. The 1080i at 120hz is problematic because
you will get each set of fields displayed twice, which will give you
ghosting. I think displaying one field at a time in progressive mode is
the way to go when using a computer monitor. And, using 1080i at 60Hz
gives you unbearable flicker.
