So far so good though:
(II) NVIDIA(0): --- Building ModePool for SONY TV (DFP-0) ---
(II) NVIDIA(0):   Validating Mode "1920x1080":
(II) NVIDIA(0):     1920 x 540 @ 60 Hz
(II) NVIDIA(0):     For use as DFP backend.
(II) NVIDIA(0):     Mode Source: EDID
(II) NVIDIA(0):       Pixel Clock      : 74.25 MHz
(II) NVIDIA(0):       HRes, HSyncStart : 1920, 2008
(II) NVIDIA(0):       HSyncEnd, HTotal : 2052, 2200
(II) NVIDIA(0):       VRes, VSyncStart :  540,  542
(II) NVIDIA(0):       VSyncEnd, VTotal :  547,  562
(II) NVIDIA(0):       H/V Polarity     : +/+
(II) NVIDIA(0):       Extra            : Interlace
(II) NVIDIA(0):     Mode is valid.
I need to do a little poking around here, it looks like the 1920 x 540 resolution is being used instead of 1920x1080, (picture is stretched vertically). Albeit a success in the sense I'm making some progress!
