You may want to make sure that your TV can display 720p/1080p via VGA.
In most cases, it can, but some (like some plasmas) do a _slightly_
different resolution when going over VGA (aka: PC Input) vs. HDMI,
Anyhow, I thought I put this in a wiki entry, but in looking back, it
doesn't look like I did.
Here's what I have for my (much smaller) TV connected via VGA displaying
at 720p. This uses the built-in nvidia modelines for displaying
standard-signal 1080p/720p/480p which should get picked up properly by
the TV. This might work for you...
VendorName "Panasonic FLM-3232"
ModelName "Proview FLM-3232"
BoardName "XFX nVidia GeForce 6200"
Option "RenderAccel" "1"
Option "NvAGP" "2"
Option "NoLogo" "true"
Option "UseEvents" "True"
Viewport 0 0
#In order, the Modes represent 1080p
#Modes "1920x1080_60" "1280x720_60" "720x480_60"
Modes "1280x720_60" "720x480_60"
