    Just edit you kboot.conf file, set it to 1080i and reboot the system.
    It will work then, i had the same problem.

    Make sure your TV actually supports 1080i, most likely it just downscales to 720p so there's no point.

    If your TV really supported 1080i (1920x1080) then it would also support 1080p.

    My TV supports 1080i, but not 1080p. It doesnt really look that good. I prefer using 720p

    Just as I suspected. Your TVs resoultion is 1366x768 which is 720p. Sure your TV can accept a 1080i signal but it just downscales it to 720p.

    Don't waste your time with 1080i, that is NOT what you are seeing with this TV. 1080i is 1920x1080 your TV just doesnt have enough pixels to physically display that.

    See my RANT on 1080i for more info.

    Bottom line. Sure your TV accepts a 1080i signal but it is still showing (read: displaying) a 720p signal. Don't bother getting 1080i to work, there's no point.
