Question Is there a framebuffer that works with 720p?

I have a linux HTPC based on MythTV and I am in the market for a DLP but I've found that many of the sets for sale now only have HDMI and don't support PC connections to these ports (they disabled PC resolutions on the digital ports! Stupid!). Anyway, as a work around I'm wondering if there is any way to set up a framebuffer for the linux console in text mode to do 480p or 720p. I've looked all over google for something that'll do it but I've found nothing.

I'm currently using the VESA Framebuffer built into the kernel to do 1024x768 to my monitor and it works well but when I plug it into a new DLP all the text goes off the screen because it doesn't support the resolution. Please help! There's got to be a way!
