Yesterday I ran 1080i60 with Nvidia GF6 6600GT and DVI. No problem, all HDTV titles and games played nice, but OS was WinXP (and no powerstrip -> default driver timings offered for HDTV by NVidia, driver implemented underscanning also worked fine).

I have also ran 1080i with Linux, GeForce4 Ti 4800 SE and DVI. But overscan on my projector was so large that I could not use computer via that so I changed to native 1:1 pixel mapping (1366x768). I can re-check my setup with 1080i and latest NVidia linux-driver.

Display is Sony VPL-HS10 projector, with 10m DVI cable.

Best regards, Jori
