This might be your driver version or just the usual grief with getting
recent nvidia drivers to accept modelines. There are plenty of other
threads discussing various config options - you just need to find one
that works :)

Once you get a 1080i50 modeline working, just test playback first with
a 1080i desktop. If that works, you'll probably want to revert to a
progressive modeline (I use 720p) and then start playing with
'Separate video modes for GUI and TV playback' (under
settings->Appearance I think).

This will allow you to leave your 1080p/720p desktop for the gui and
then swich to 1080i (or 576i etc) for specific material.
