except that 1080i can be resolved into 1080p using IVTC, which is what
the 1080p displays do. Whether 720p is better than 1080i, it really
comes down to the content being watch. Sports do betterin 720p due to
the high action content, pretty much everything else looks better in
1080i because of the greater pixel count. 1080p's only downside is
that it requires more bandwitdth due to the increase in data.

assuming the Sony electronics all use similar modelines, try some of
the ones in the Wiki's modeline database. Or just search for one of
the TV's in the same family as yours (KDF-__WF___)

Xorg's native nv and ati drivers will display EDID information in the
Xorg log. Its the same data entech's software receives. Then use one
of the modeline generators to create a modeline.
Before you ask, read the FAQ!
