Very interesting thread, there looks like a lot of interest in this.

Here's an update on my original post.

I've got the Pioneer! Very nice it is too.  I've bought a DVI->HDMI cable 
which works with my NVidia GeForce 4 MX440, but getting the X output right 
isn't happening.

Playing round with refresh rates and scanlines from googling the net
results in the TV displaying the picture but at strange states such as
1125i and 765p (this is what the TV displays on screen) - I can never seem
to get standard 1080i or 720p - anyone know why? Does anyone actually have
this working with the Pioneer and can give me the proper configuration for
X, or give me hints on how to get it right? I can't seem to find any specs
in the manual referencing refresh rates and other info. When I use VDR
(lib-xine) on normal SDTV the picture looks strange and the audio is
slightly out of sync.. :-(

The picture is okay when I use the standard VGA connection on the front - 
perhaps I could query the relevant information from DDC, would this also 
apply to inputs via HDMI?

When I use the 765p mode, the picture isn't exactly right, but I have used 
VDR to view the demo high definition channel on Astra 1. What can I say? 
Amazing.
