In fact, more and more computers these days are being connected to
digital inputs on HDTVs which only grok a limited number of ATSC
video modes. For example, my Sony HDTV's HDMI inputs support only
1920x1080, 1280x720 and 640x480 (though it claims 720x480 as well
via EDID, it trims the sides and pillarboxes the resulting image,
apparently assuming 480 scanlines always means 4:3 aspect ratio).

So in addition to 1920x1080 I would also suggest 1280x720, since
that's closest to my TV's LCD panel's native resolution and what I
will be booting at via KMS (using manual resolution selection in the
kernel as of 2.6.32).
