[mythtv-users] Better looking playback?

Ok so i found 720p modeline and a 1080i modeline, looks pretty standard. Ok
if i run under 1080i, nothing is shown under RGB-PC but if i got to RGB-DTV
on my tv, i can see it, really nice, but it's half and half, like a line
runs down the middle, and the right half is on the left and the left half is
on the right, like the screen has moved to the halfway to the right.
However, 720p doesn't work. I don't understand. neither rgb-pc or rgb-dtv
has no signal when i run in 720p, that's if i don't have contingencies. Like
in my xf86config-4 file

mode "720p" has no signal
mode "720p" "1024x768" runs in 1024x768 not 720p. Can my 5200 not send in
720p, I really need help.

here is the part that probably matters in the config file:

ModeLine "1080i STD" 74.250 1920 2008 2048 2200 1080 1084 1094 1125
ModeLine "720p" 74.176 1280 1320 1376 1650 720 722 728 750 Interlace
