[mythtv-users] i810 displaying hdtv on a dfp

I'm trying to output at a higher resolution on my frontend which is
using the i810 drivers.  My DFP is connected via DVI.   I've used
915resolution to set the resolution I want to use (1920x1080) but Xorg
still drops me back down to 640x480.

in my Xorg.0.log, I see:

(II) VESA(0): h_active: 1920  h_sync: 2008  h_sync_end 2052
h_blank_end 2200 h_border: 0
(II) VESA(0): v_active: 540  v_sync: 542  v_sync_end 547 v_blanking:
562 v_border: 0
(II) VESA(0): Ranges: V min: 48  V max: 67 Hz, H min: 30  H max: 34
kHz, PixClock max 80 MHz
(II) VESA(0): Monitor name: RCA Scenium
(II) VESA(0): Searching for matching VESA mode(s):

So I set the resolution with:
sudo 915resolution 5c 1920 540

I restart xorg, and I see this in the X logs:
(II) VESA(0): Not using mode "1920x1080" (no mode of this name)

(II) VESA(0): Attempting to use 60Hz refresh for mode "640x480" (111)

Does anyone have any suggestions?
