Default Need help with HDTV output

I am completely lost. I have a GForce 9500 connected to either a Samsung Monitor or a hitachi Plasma TV. With both devices i was unable to force the graphics card to 1080i mode.

Here the relevant sections of my xorg.conf:

ModelName "SYNCMASTER 240T"
Option "PreferredMode" "1080i"

Section "Device"
BoardName "GeForce 9500 GT"
BusID "1:0:0"

InputDevice "Mouse[1]" "CorePointer"
Option "Clone" "off"
Option "Xinerama" "off"
Screen 0 "Screen2" 0 0
Screen 1 "Screen1" RightOf "Screen1"

and here an extract from the Xorg.log file
