I have a 45" Aquos, so my config file won't help you much (different resolution),
but I know that I wasn't able to get the native resolution of the panel until
I added my own modelines. They're not detected automatically (Sharp is a bit
odd in that regard).
I got my modelines from http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Modeline_Database
and then had to tweak a few because some numbers had to be multiples of 8 for
the FX5200 driver.
You might want to add the ones you want from the above URL, and then if they
don't all work, check your X log to see why they were rejected, and tweak
values until they do.
