Crikey, make the guy feel bad!
Actually, of the demos I have seen, the non HD screens actually look a
little better for non HD tv. I guess if you get an HD screen then you
are a little more futureproofed, but I haven't yet seen a 42" screen
with HD that has square pixels, ie 13xx ish by 768.
Anyway, to answer your question, try using something like videogen to
generate a modeline for your screen. Note that unless you have some
funky graphics card you will need that width to be divisible by 8.
Whack the modeline in /etc/X11/XF86Config or whatever your distro uses
and off you go
