Now that I have the latest git version of the driver, I've just
re-tried the VGA approach and...it works! Perfectly! At 1280x768!
It doesn't seem to be picking up the other available modes, but as you
say this is probably because the EDID information is being suppressed;
I'll try explicitly stating the modes (possibly with modelines) and
see if that works. But primarily I am happy because I have a decent
resolution on my TV! So the hell with DVI-to-HDMI anyway, I'll do it
with DVI-to-VGA :)
