I'm assuming this doesn't work for VT[1-6] which is what I am really
curious about. I still have no idea what mode or resolution VT[1-6] is
using, but after 6 months of playing around, it it the only thing that
causes my TV to kick into 1080i mode.
Ideas on how to get the mode or resolution of the terminal?
