Connecting XBMC to Sony AV AMP STR-(DH800 / DA2400ES)

Sony AMPS (at least the ones list in title), don't seem to add 1080p/60 1080p/24 to their preferred timings, although they do fully support them.

This can be verified by adding
Option "ModeDebug" "1"
to the "Montior" section of xorg.conf, which will allow you to see the the modes which the AMP advertises.

The following are the 1080p/(60|24) Modelines for the above AMPS:

"1920x1080@60p" 148.5 1920 2008 2056 2200 1080 1084 1089 1125 +hsync +vsync
"1920x1080@24p" 74.2 1920 2560 2604 2752 1080 1084 1089 1125 +hsync +vsync

These must be used in conjunction with

Option "ExactModeTimingsDVI" "True"

in the "Screen" section of xorg.conf
