It is; you just need to use one of the modeline calculators that are available.
I use an FX5200 to drive an LCD at 1280x768. I had another LCD before that
for a few days that allegedly was 1280x720, but I took it back because there
was no apparent way to coax it into actually running at its native resolution.
I still have the modeline for it; you might try it as a starting point:
Modeline "1280x720 at 60" 73.78 1280 1350 1390 1650 720 725 730 750

You would use MythTV's deinterlacing options (which unfortunately don't include
inverse 3:2 pulldown for the many shows that would benefit from it, but
they'll still clean up a fair bit of interlace noise).
