This sounds like it does the same as my 32" Vizio. Mine only accepts
the standard resolutions over HDMI (1080i/720p/480p/480i) so I use the
VGA input instead which allows me to drive it at its native

Option "UseEvents" "True"
Option "NoLogo" "True"
Option "UseDisplayDevice" "CRT"
Option "ModeValidation" "NoWidthAlignmentCheck"
Viewport 0 0
Modes "1366x768_60" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
